B'nai Brith Youth Organization (BBYO)

Through BBYO’s leadership programs that are rich in empowerment, meaning and fun, teens form deep and lasting connections to Jewish life.

Location: Washington , DC
Year founded: 1925

Description

For many Jewish teens, Bar/Bat Mitzvah is an end, not a beginning (Saxe, Kadushin, Kelner, 2000). BBYO is reversing that trend by establishing the post bar/bat mitzvah years as a powerful Jewish experience that engenders pride and permanence. BBYO is the leading pluralistic Jewish teen movement aspiring to involve more Jewish teens in more meaningful Jewish experiences. For nearly 90 years, AZA and BBG chapters in communities around the world have been providing exceptional leadership programs and identity enrichment experiences, shaping the lives of 250,000 alumni who are among the most prominent figures in business, politics, academia, the arts and communal life. Now, more than ever, BBYO offers unique opportunities for teens to connect with one another, serve their communities, navigate the college admissions process and travel the world, providing each participant with a network of lifelong friends, a perspective which adds value and meaning to life and a shared commitment to strengthening the Jewish future.

BBYO offers a Jewish teen experience that builds character and confidence, preparing participants to take on life’s challenges with the support of their community. A study conducted on BBYO’s program found that the BBYO experience has a significantly positive impact on the class indicators of Jewish connection.

BBYO teens in Phoenix's 7 chapters participate in a teen-led program model based on experiential democracy where they develop public speaking, organizational and general leadership skills as they are elected to office, plan programs and launch campaigns. BBYO’s AZA/BBG premier leadership program challenges teens to develop the leadership skills necessary to strengthen themselves, the Jewish community and the world around them. Ultimately, the confidence, character and commitment to the Jewish community that they develop prepare them to engage in the causes of the Jewish community, including advocating for Israel, helping people in need and inspiring young Jews who have not yet found a connection. Your investment will ensure that more Jewish teens receive a rich AZA/BBG leadership experience, attend domestic summer leadership experiences, regional conventions and more.


BBYO Mountain Region Advisor Training

About

BBYO’s professionals and volunteer advisors have always formed the backbone of the organization and are essential to engaging, motivating, and developing relationships with our teens. They are mentors, teachers, and guides who make a profound difference in young peoples’ lives. BBYO advisors are part of an international network of 700 volunteers that include alumni, parents and friends of BBYO who care about the Jewish future. Mountain Region which is comprised of Phoenix, Tucson, Las Vegas, and Salt Lake City, has approximately 30 advisors. The regional office is located inside of the Valley of the Sun Jewish Community Center in Scottsdale.  BBYO requests $5,000 to help fund an innovative joint advisor training program for Mountain Region advisors. 


Back to Top

What is the mission and purpose of this program?

BBYO Mountain Region seeks funds to assist in the creation of a high level training program to help these advisors have the greatest possible influence. Advisors will participate in a meaningful weekend experience and learn about best practices on how to strengthen the BBYO chapters they're involved with. The sessions throughout the weekend will include topics on how to build our movement through recruitment and chapter programming as well as Jewish enrichment sessions about Shabbat, BBYO Stand UP and Israel. BBYO advisors will have the opportunity to network and share chapter success stories. This will also give local BBYO staff the opportunity to review policies and procedures and best practices for relationship building and communication for the various constituencies our advisors work with. The two day, one night training program hosted at a local Phoenix meeting space will be offered at no expense to our 30 Mountain Region advisors. The funds would be used to cover travel expenses, accommodations for non-local advisors, and program costs.

Program Description

BBYO is the Jewish community’s largest teen leadership development program, offering more than 25,000 North American Jewish teens an opportunity to participate in AZA and BBG chapters annually.  For these teens, one of the most influential aspects of the BBYO experience is the interaction with their chapter Advisor.  Advisors are role models for BBYO members, helping AZA and BBG chapters with their programs, and working with teens to develop the character and confidence they need to handle the challenges of the high school years. BBYO Mountain Region seeks funds to assist in the creation of a high level training program to help these advisors have the greatest possible influence in the chapter they oversee and in turn, the overall greater Jewish community.

Demonstrated Need

The need that our program serves is two-fold. BBYO is committed to building the local leadership base by training our volunteers to not only make a difference in their BBYO community but to also be engaged and involved in the Greater Phoenix Jewish community. By training our volunteers, they are exposed to many facets of the Greater Phoenix Jewish community including organizations and their leadership and facilities, and general access to a very giving community. 

Back to Top

Program Accomplishments

As stated previously, BBYO's advisors are often one of the most influential people that our teens have a relationship with during their high school years. The majority of our advisors are BBYO alumni that were impacted by the role models that BBYO provided them during their most formidable years and now want to give back by being that role model to our current membership.

How do you measure the success of your program?

BBYO Mountain Region is excited about this new program. The success of this new training initiative will be apparent through increased programming excellence and membership recruitment growth by the teens of their chapter.

BBYO Mountain Region Advisor Training & Support

About

BBYO is the leading pluralistic teen movement aspiring to involve more Jewish teens in more meaningful Jewish experiences. For over 90 years, BBYO has provided exceptional identity enrichment and leadership development experiences for hundreds of thousands of Jewish teens. In 2002, under the leadership of philanthropist Lynn Schusterman, BBYO became independent from B’nai B’rith, enabling it to recruit its own leadership, generate its own resources and chart its own course. Today, BBYO remains dedicated to its mission—more Jewish teens, more meaningful Jewish experiences—yet has modernized every aspect of operations to stay relevant and impactful.

While BBYO has a full-time staff member, the program would not be successful if it wasn't for the volunteer advisors leading the teens in programming, leadership, operations and recruitment. Currently there are 800 volunteer advisors around North America, 27 in Mountain Region with 15 in the Phoenix area. These advisors dedicate their time to enhancing the teens’ experiences. Given these statistics, BBYO has made continued Advisor Training a priority. The key to our success is training the cream of the crop advisors who see their role having an impact far beyond the years they spend with the teens. The skills and experiences that teens will gain from the benefit of good advisors will translate directly into personal success and a long-term commitment to the Jewish community.

What is the mission and purpose of this program?

Rooted in over 90 years of revered tradition, BBYO remains dedicated to its mission -- more Jewish teens, more meaningful Jewish experiences -- yet has modernized every aspect of its operations to make it relevant and impactful to today's Jewish teens.

Since its independence from B'nai B'rith in 2002, BBYO has built a powerful platform of teens, alumni, parents, professionals, volunteers, and philanthropists who deliver a wide variety of fun, meaningful and affordable experiences to the post-bar/bat mitzvah-age teen audience. BBYO’s peer leadership model is complemented by an infusion of Jewish content by internal Jewish educators, external speakers, and curriculum from partner organizations.

The content, offered in BBYO’s powerful environments and supported by volunteer advisors, has a profound impact on teens. BBYO’s leadership curriculum is based on a concept called “experiential democracy.” By running for peer-elected positions, organizing chapter meetings, and planning their programs and retreats - teens learn important skills around setting and accomplishing goals through respect and collaboration. These lessons build character, confidence, resilience, a meaningful connection to Israel and a desire to grow their understanding of what it means to be a Jew.

BBYO Mountain Region seeks funds to assist in the continuation of a high level training program to assist advisors during their time leading BBYO teens. Advisors will participate in a meaningful weekend experience and learn about best practices on how to strengthen the BBYO chapters they're involved with. The sessions throughout the weekend will include topics on how to build our movement through recruitment and chapter programming, as well as Jewish enrichment sessions about Shabbat, BBYO Stand UP and Israel. Advisors will also have the opportunity to meet with outside educators or medical professionals to learn best practices for working with teens across all barriers (emotional, physical or mental). This advisor training weekend also gives local BBYO staff the opportunity to review policies, procedures and best practices for relationship building and communication for the various constituencies our advisors work with. The two day, one night training program hosted at a local Phoenix meeting space will be offered at no expense to our 30 Mountain Region advisors. The funds would be used to cover travel expenses, accommodations for non-local advisors, and program costs. By supporting volunteer advisors and providing training, BBYO is investing in the development of the program and the teen members.

Back to Top

Program Description

Funding for this initiative would enable BBYO to benefit by bringing outside resources in as educators and facilitators to lead sessions on topics such as the art of negotiation with teens, conflict resolution, inter-group relations, teen development, informal Jewish education, youth-advisor and staff-advisor relations, community relations and engaging in partnerships with communal agencies, creative alumni engagement, teen fundraising, leadership styles, effective engagement of parents from a teen recruitment and retention standpoint and innovative marketing of programs to teens and parents.

This initiative will provide for camaraderie, networking and collaboration among advisors who do not have the opportunity to interface on a daily basis, yet who can complement each other’s efforts in implementing BBYO’s mission. It is our hope, with your partnership and assistance, to sustain the Mountain Region Advisor Training to ensure that we have the highest caliber of training to implement our mission and to transform Jewish teens into the Jewish community’s future leaders. Our goal is to plan a weekend training, once funding is secured and to continue training/retention.

Back to Top

Demonstrated Need

BBYO in Mountain Region is growing rapidly, from both a programmatic and outreach perspective, and seeks to expand the number of advisors to be proportionately appropriate to the number of teens that are being engaged in activities. This expansion, along with the appropriate level of training, will support our strategic goal of growing our membership base to 400 in FY18. In order to do so successfully, we need to recruit high energy, creative thinking individuals with a propensity to volunteer as youth advisors, train them accordingly and retain them.

BBYO advisors are the individuals who have the primary interface with our teen market. This requires the acquisition of a unique collection of skills ranging from being a community organizer to a counselor (within limits) to a Jewish educator to a creative programmer and most importantly a good listener. Often advisors are BBYO alumni who have an understanding of the organization and teens. They also have the creative drive, motivation and patience to provide guidance to the teens in developing unique programs to enable us to realize our outreach goals of attracting teens who would not ordinarily participate in youth group activities. There is certainly a partnership with our professionals in this effort and a critical component is youth empowerment.

We expect that many of these new advisors will remain with BBYO for several years, and an investment in their growth and knowledge of teen issues and risk management will make that experience that much more personally rewarding and beneficial to BBYO. It is our desire to continue to develop and support the Mountain Region Advisor Training Program with the help of the NowGen Giving Circle.

Program Accomplishments

1. As of April 27, 2017, BBYO has engaged 19,564 AZA and BBG members. This membership figure represents a 4% increase from this time last year and progress to our goal of 20,000. BBYO moved toward a chapter-based recruitment model where chapters felt more responsible for recruitment goals. To aid these efforts, the Program Department developed a membership tracker to monitor goals and actual progress, as well as fall membership templates to build a macro-level calendar for engagement.

2. In February 2017, BBYO hosted the largest International Convention (IC) in its history of more than 90 years, bringing together in Dallas, TX more than 2,500 Jewish teen leaders from 24 countries in addition to 1,500 leaders, philanthropists, educators, BBYO professionals, advisors and volunteers. BBYO offered 30 leadership learning labs across Dallas, for teens to learn about advocacy, globalization, Israel, leadership, marketing and communications, philanthropy, political engagement, relationship building, service, chapter and program development, event management and design, and more. Teens also engaged in over 200 limmud learning sessions and 25 teen-led services on Shabbat.

4. More teens from North America and around the world are participating in global programming. Over 150 teens attended BBYO March of the Living this April and 435 teens traveled to Israel with BBYO Passport last summer. We have expanded our work with the JDC to engage teens in more international communities.

5. Mountain Region has increased its total membership to 376, surpassing our 2017 fiscal year end goal.

How do you measure the success of your program?

Last year, we held the first annual advisor training in Phoenix for BBYO's Mountain Region advisors. During the advisor training weekend, our volunteer advisors bonded as a team, discussed chapter and teen issues, heard from trained professionals, received updated manuals and policies. This training has translated into a successful year in BBYO Mountain Region. The chapters in the region are growing and were able to exceed their membership goal for 2017. In the upcoming advisor training, we hope to introduce new advisors to the training program, while helping current advisors learn new tools on supporting BBYO. Once the advisor training weekend has ended, we will share a survey with the attendees to get feedback and will measure the growth of their chapters.

BBYO's My Mind, My Body, My Attitude: Empowering Strong Jewish Women

About

In 1994, BBYO International launched two different program thrusts: AZAA (AZA Athletics) and MBA (Mind, Body, Attitude) which were intended to strengthen the character building, recreational, team building and morale elements of the Aleph Zadik Aleph and B’nai B’rith Girls experience. Since that time, MBA has been embraced as part of BBG programming standards and enriched the B’nai B’rith Girl experience for existing and new Sisters. MBA encourages each BBG chapter to include areas of programming that explore healthy behaviors. Topics include physical fitness, body image, self esteem, women’s health, managing stress, personal safety, self-defense and other issues relevant to to the lives of teenage girls. The goal of the programming is to help teenage girls grow not only socially, but physically and emotionally while part of the organization. This is achieved through ongoing programming throughout the year to work towards developing strong young women both physically and emotionally. However, as important as it is for our teens to be having these conversations with one another, BBYO staff, and volunteer advisors, BBYO recognizes the importance of strong communication between teens and their parents. Therefore, we would like to create an opportunity for mothers and daughters to come together for a seminar in Scottsdale to explore the topics of Mind, Body, and Attitude.

Back to Top

What is the mission and purpose of this program?

Mind, Body, and Attitude (MBA) is a programming initiative designed to strengthen the way that BBGs (BBYO Girls) think, act, and feel about themselves and the world around them. The goal of MBA is to heighten awareness and adoption of healthy lifestyles, attitudes, and behavior through innovative programming across the region. Goals of our mother/daughter seminar include learning skills for healthier mother-daughter communication during the teenage years, empowering the girls to become self-sufficient, and inspiring participants to develop positive attitudes and self-esteem to make healthier lifestyle choices.

Back to Top

Program Description

My Mind, My Body, My Attitude is an established program of BBYO Mountain Region: Phoenix. This seminar, hosted at the Valley of the Sun JCC in Scottsdale will bring together families from all over the Valley. In it's first year, this event was primarily marketed for mothers and daughters to experience together, however this year we will showcase that it is open to all local 8th to 12th grade Jewish ladies and the strong woman in their life (mothers, sisters, aunts, grandmothers, or guardians). Teens do not need to be members of BBYO to participate. The event will cost a minimal admission fee for adults and teens will be admitted for free. The program will kick off with a Limmud (Jewish learning) type class with local Jewish teachers and professionals, then move into two sessions focusing on mind, body and attitude. We hope to partner again with local organizations such as the Jewish Federation of Phoenix and extend our partnerships to include The Learning Shuk, and The Women’s Jewish Learning Center, as well as local congregations. This event will feature a keynote speaker that will discuss the empowerment of young women and how to realize one's true potential and become the best leader, friend, and daughter possible. All attendees will receive a gift bag containing valuable promotional offers and information from local businesses and organizations. BBYO Mountain Region will work with BBYO's national marketing department to create engaging materials and help cut down on program expenses.

Demonstrated Need

Young women today are constantly subjected to violence, inequality, body shaming, and rape culture. They are growing up in a world where these acts are becoming accepted and encouraged. Beyond music videos and the media, social network platforms often perpetuate the negative culture female teens have to battle on a daily basis.

Approximately one in three adolescent girls in the United States is a victim of physical, emotional or verbal abuse from a dating partner – a figure that far exceeds victimization rates for other types of violence affecting youth;7. The “My Mind, My Body, My Attitude” program works to change the way young women react and handle many types of violence and advocate for female empowerment. This program can help to bring about a wave of reform, as it will be a necessary tool to help young women learn to take control of their lives.

Young women today are looking for strong and powerful females to serve as their role models. Often times the women they idolize are celebrities in the media. This program allows young women to bring their mother, grandmother, aunt, older sister or another strong female figure in their life to build a stronger relationship. By allowing young women in the community to bring a close female mentor to this program, they will have the opportunity to not only learn about self-care and health, but to develop confidence and women’s empowerment with someone that they trust. By developing this trust and bond, these young women will continue to rely on their mentors when they need advice or assistance and will hopefully one day serve as mentors themselves.

Part of the role of BBYO is to assist teens as they prepare for the next step – college. Teens in BBYO learn leadership, time management, organizational and communication skills. However, a major facet for young women in college is the fear of sexual assault on college campuses. The US Department of Justice reports that “95% of attacks are underreported”.8 This staggering statistic is one that we have the ability to change to impact young women in the community. With the “My Mind, My Body, My Attitude” program, young women will hear during programming and speakers about being in control of their body and their self-worth. Hearing this information from local Jewish leaders will help prepare young women to handle situations that may arise or answer any questions they may have. It is critical that we empower young women to take control and learn from knowledgeable female leaders in their own community.

Program Accomplishments

The first My Mind, My Body, My Attitude program was held in 2016 at the Valley of the Sun JCC and was incredibly successful - with 60 attendees! The event opened with keynote speaker Aleeza Adelman, Director of Jewish Enrichment at BBYO, discussing the Jewish connection to ourselves and strong women in our lives. Following the welcome, attendees split into three, 30 minute sessions and rotated between each session. The first session, led by Karyn Hendricksen an esteemed exercise physiologist and wellness educator, was an interactive forum discussing overall health and wellness. The second session was led by Dr. Adrienne Kurland, a local pediatrician who specializes in adolescent medicine. She answered questions submitted by attendees and gave a short session about important facts for teens. The final session was led by Rebecca Lammersen, a trained yoga instructor and published author. Rebecca led a program focused on meditation, breathing and the art of communication without speaking. It was an emotional and moving program that was highly praised by attendees. The My Mind, My Body, My Attitude program concluded with a song circle, led by esteemed BBYO Songleaders Happie Hoffman and Eric Hunker and refreshments and dessert. We accomplished our goals to engage our community with knowledgeable speakers and connect the program to Judaism.

How do you measure the success of your program?

BBYO measured success of this program based on attendance and feedback, including, but not limited to: ability to communicate at the teen level, provide value for the money (applicable to some), providing meaningful experiences for teens and their female mentors, and meeting our overall objectives. Our goals for this program were to bring knowledgeable and engaging speakers, provide important content to local Valley families, have high attendance and receive positive feedback that the program had an impact. Based on our metrics, we believe this program was incredibly successful and made a difference in our local Jewish community.

Since that time, AZAA has served as an integral component of the Aleph Zadik Aleph that engages both Alephs and non-members, excites young members and sustains older member involvement, and develops community partnerships often filling a communal need that doesn’t already exist. MBA has been embraced as part of BBG programming standards and enriched the B’nai B’rith Girl experience for existing Sisters. MBA encourages each BBG chapter to include areas of programming that explore healthy behaviors. Topics include physical fitness, eating disorders, body image, self esteem, women’s health, managing stress, personal safety, self-defense and other issues relevant to to the lives of teenage girls.

Program Description

My Mind, My Body, My Attitude is a new program of BBYO Mountain Region: Phoenix. The program will be a full day seminar hosted in Scottsdale. Although it will be primarily marketed as an event for mothers and daughters to experience together, the event is open to all local 8th to 12th grade Jewish girls and their moms, sisters, aunts, and grandmothers. Teens do not need to be members of BBYO to participate. The event will cost a minimal admission fee for adults and teens will be admitted for free. The morning will begin with separate sessions for adults and teens. Sessions will include limmud (Jewish learning) type classes with local Jewish teachers and professionals, sessions regarding women's health, and classes on relaxation and spirituality. We hope to partner with local organizations such as the Jewish Federation of Phoenix, the Bureu of Jewish Education, The Learning Shuk, and The Women’s Jewish Learning Center as well as local congregations for the limmud classes. For other sessions, we'll invite local healthcare and fitness professionals to lead us. After the morning activities, the teens and adults will come together for a lunch featuring a keynote speaker that will discuss the empowerment of young women and how to realize one's true potential and become the best leader, friend, and daughter possible. In the afternoon, the teens and adults will attend workshops together that build on the values and topics discussed in the morning sessions. There will also be hands on sessions including various fitness classes.

Program Accomplishments

As a new program, we don't have any accomplishments in this specific area but the region as a whole and program quality have both grown tremendously over the last 3 years. In the
past ten years, BBYO has increased its reach from 15,000 to over 40,000 teens
annually and we forecast even more unprecedented growth in the next five
years.  We have deployed numerous strategies and established
several partnerships to achieve this growth, our strongest being our unwavering
commitment to letting our target audience – Jewish teens – lead the way.  Core to BBYO’s culture and values is treating
teens like adults, encouraging them to chart our course, and holding them to
the highest standards.  BBYO teens
continually articulate a desire to be a part of something bigger than
themselves, and they utilize the BBYO platform to achieve it.

How do you measure the success of your program?

After the event, a survey will be sent out to each attending teen and adult in order to measure the impact that the program had on them and to allow attendees to rate the quality of programs and educational services we provided. Things we intend to measure include our ability to communicate at the teen's level, provide value for the money (applicable to some), providing meaningful experiences for the teens and their female mentors, and meeting our overall objectives.
