BBYO Nashville | Music City BBG & Athens of the South AZA
If you are a Jewish teen in 8th-12th grade – then BBYO is looking for You! BBYO is the nation’s leading pluralistic Jewish teen movement aspiring to involve more Jewish teens in more meaningful Jewish experiences. With a network of hundreds of chapters across North America and in 42 countries around the world, BBYO reaches over 80,000 teens annually and serves as the Jewish community’s largest and most valuable platform for delivering fun, meaningful and affordable experiences that inspire a lasting connection to the Jewish people.
It is a teen led organization in which the teens themselves plan their own programs under the supervision of volunteer advisors and BBYO professional staff. In Nashville we have two chapters, Music City BBG (for those who self-identify as female) and Athens of the South AZA (for those who self-identify as male). Nashville is part CSR a region within BBYO’s global movement that brings together Nashville, Knoxville, Memphis, Huntsville, Birmingham, and New Orleans. We hold four conventions throughout the programming year to unite our region. Locally we have outings at places like LaserQuest, TopGolf, Dave & Busters, and more. From sisterhood sleepovers and brotherhood overnights to chapter dinners and home-housed events, BBYO provides a place for Jewish teens in Nashville to grow as leaders and connect with their tribe year-round. Become a BBYO member here!
Not yet in 8th-12th grade? Check out BBYO Connect!
BBYO Connect is our Jewish teen engagement program in Nashville for teens in 6th-8th grade. Teens will have the opportunity to make new friends and hang out, while getting a taste of what BBYO is all about. Many of the programs have BBYO members there to help facilitate the activities and represent the larger BBYO movement.
J-Serve provides thousands of teens around the world with the opportunity to fulfill the Jewish values of gemilut chasidim, acts of loving kindness, tzedakah, just and charitable giving, and tikkum olam, the responsibility to repair the world. Across the globe, teens will join each other to make their community and the world a better place. This year the Nashville Jewish community is looking to engage 75-100 6th-12th grade teens in our day of service on April 14, 2019, hosting numerous projects to benefit our direct community. Stay tuned, registration opens in March!
