One of the greatest legacies any Aleph or BBG can leave is starting a new chapter or launching a new community in their council, region, or country. This is one of the fastest ways to grow BBYO around the world.
But why would you start a new chapter? Great question. There are three important questions to think about when it comes to chapter start-up:
Does your chapter have enough leadership opportunities for everyone involved?
Are there specialized groups of people in your community that could form a chapter (e.g., Summer camp alumni or Russian-speaking Jews)?
Is there a city, town, or suburb in your area that has Jewish people, but no chapter?
There are many reasons to start a new chapter. Utilize these tools below to guide you through the process for creating and sustaining a new AZA, BBG, or BBYO chapter.
