For 90 years, Aleph Zadik Aleph (AZA) and B’nai Brith Girls (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 Jewish communal life. Involvement in BBYO is open to any Jewish teen in grades 8-12, regardless of current or previous communal and congregational affiliations. This is a teen led organization that truly empowers all of its members in to growing in to their ‘best self’.
