REFLECTING ON OUR YEAR

Dear Friends, BBYO’s 2019–2020 theme, Tomorrow Happens Here, speaks to the role that young people play in defining the future. That theme plays well when constants like regional conventions, chapter sleepovers, and trips to Israel mark the contours of a teen’s year. But what happens when the unimaginable becomes real? Perhaps Today Happens Here would have been a more appropriate theme to mark the urgency of BBYO’s mission.      An abrupt end to “life as usual” in early March caused humanity to adjust to a new reality marked by fear and isolation. Through grit and necessity, BBYO teens forged a digital platform, BBYO On Demand, to keep our community connected during the most difficult times. We mourned the things we lost—regional conventions, sports, and proms—as we replaced them with laughter, song, and prayer. A new adolescent rhythm emerged through yoga classes with teens from Bulgaria on Tuesday, Israeli cooking classes on Thursday, time zone-based Havdalah services on Saturday, and more. We even had a drop-in from AZA alumnus, Mark Cuban, who discussed leadership and the opportunities one can find during times of disruption. BBYO On Demand also helped us process the murder of George Floyd and explore topics of racial justice as we watched social unrest engulf our communities.    Through all that was going on in the world, our resiliency and creativity allowed us to go through it together. The BBYO Movement reached more teens in the last year than ever before, expanding to 37 new communities across the world, from Brazil to the Netherlands. And while the statistics look great, there is an even more important story— the narrative of BBYO serving as a support system and sense of community to teens who needed it more than ever.  Thanks to your support and generosity, we were able to pivot and provide this foundation at a moment of incredible need, and we are now poised to re-emerge on the other side of this crisis stronger than ever. We are truly grateful for your partnership in bringing teens a supportive environment that promotes the resiliency and confidence they need to carry them through the darkest moments. And, because our theme was Tomorrow Happens Here, we will all certainly benefit from the light that they create. Warmly,

Matthew Grossman Chief Executive Officer
