BBYO Nashville | Music City BBG & Athens of the South AZA
If you are a Jewish teen in 9th -12th grade—then BBYO is looking for You! BBYO is the nation’s leading pluralistic Jewish teen movement, bringing together teens of various Jewish backgrounds. Any teen that identifies with being Jewish is eligible to join BBYO. 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 chapter- Music City BBG (for girls) and Athens of the South AZA (for boys). Nashville is part of Cotton States Region – that brings together teens from Nashville, Knoxville, Memphis, Huntsville, Birmingham, and New Orleans. We hold conventions four times a year to unite our region.
Teens: BBYO (Grades 9-12)
BBYO is the leading pluralistic Jewish teen movement aspiring to involve more Jewish teens in more meaningful Jewish experiences. For 90 years, Aleph Zadik Aleph (AZA) and B’nai Brith Girls 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 9-12, regardless of current or previous communal and congregational affiliations. This is a teen led organization that truly empowers all of its members to grow into their ‘best self’.
