I was a member of the Big Apple Region from 2002 through 2006. In that time, I gained the most comprehensive leadership experience I could possibly have gotten. In addition to be selected to the Young Leadership Institute as a freshman, I was my chapter's Shomerit Habrit (Sunshine Girl), N'siah and Regional Mazkirah. Perhaps the experience that I reflect most upon in the years since I was involved in BBYO was my participation as a delegate to the 2006 March of the Living. I am confident that I would never have had the experience of going to Poland and seeing the horrors and destruction of the Holocaust and then immediately after being able to go to Israel, to see the Jewish homeland and how the Jewish people have risen from the ashes to remain a united people.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

that it gave me a structured social network outside of my high school and within the Jewish community. I met my best friend in BBYO, and I developed skills that have been invaluable to me as a college student and in my job search.

My son started BBYO in 2008 at the beginning of his 9th grade year. He experienced a tough year starting high school....the pressure, the AP classes, a new school, girlfriend issues, you name it...he went through it! BBYO was the touchstone that brought him through this very difficult year. He is now fully active and is an officer of his chapter (Hurricane's in Miami) and is striving to take a position as a regional officer and attending IC 2010 as well. He is fully invested in BBYO, as my husband was many years ago. It has played a large part of getting him through some very trying times and we, as parents, feel so thankful for this program.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

my son's overall dedication to this group as it has helped him cope with other areas of his life that has been troubling.

While growing up in Atlanta in the 70s, BBYO was my social outlet. We all spent every Sunday at the JCC with our BBYO friends hanging out. Everyone went to different schools but came together through BBYO. Many of the friendships I made then are still important to me today.

It's pretty hard to to describe a bbyo experience in just a paragraph. Well to start, BBYO has truly changed my life. It has helped me to develop leadership skills I wouldnt have if i wasnt involved in bbyo. It has led me to meet so many amazing people, many my best friends. I have been able to make a difference in peoples lives and in the world. It has truly made me a better person. I have further discovered my jewish identity. BBYO has given me a place where i can be myself, where i can connect with other jews, where i can feel empowered.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

change the lives of so many young people. It could have millions of people participating in community service. It could feed the homeless. This is one organization that could truly make a difference in the whole world.
