A group of highly motivated Melbourne Jewish teens are this year working to grow the vibrant BBYO youth movement in Melbourne. They are running regular events in 2020, which are open to secondary school students from years 8 – 12. BBYO Melbourne is supported by UJEB, BBYO International and B’nai B’rith Victoria.
Members of the core group have had exciting opportunities to connect with the BBYO international movement in the 18 months since the establishment of the Melbourne chapter. In June-July 2019 a group travelled to Pennsylvania for BBYO’s International Leadership Training Conference (ILTC), where they honed their leadership skills with 250 teens from all over the world. In February 2020, another UJEB delegation of students attended the BBYO International Convention (IC) in Dallas, Texas, where they joined more than 6,000 Jewish teens, educators and philanthropists from over 50 countries.
