world, BBYO is open to any teen who identifies as Jewish. BBYO is a teen-led organization under the supervision of volunteer adult advisers and a professional staff. For more than 85 years, BBYO has offered unique and exciting opportunities for Jewish teens to connect with one another, build friendships and learn leadership skills that can last a lifetime. Nashville has two BBYO chapters: Athens of the South AZA (boys) and Music City BBG (girls). Nashville is part of Cotton States Region that includes Jewish teens from Nashville, Knoxville, Memphis, Birmingham, Huntsville, and New Orleans. Regional chapters come together four times a year for conventions. There are various programs for BBYO teens here in Nashville – sisterhood/brotherhood dinners, formals, community service, chapter meetings and holiday celebrations. BBYO also has a range of summer experiences for teens – leadership development, Jewish learning, Israel travel, entrepreneurship, community service and more. (Scholarships are available for all programs). Teens are eligible to join BBYO starting in January of their 8th grade year or anytime during high school. For those are not yet in high school, BBYO Connect offers fun social opportunities for Jewish students in grades 6-8. Activities range from pool parties to cooking challenges to volunteer opportunities. There are programs every four to six weeks during the academic year. Nashville BBYO is partially funded by the Gordon Jewish Community Center and the Jewish Federation of Nashville and Middle Tennessee. •
