Join Jewish teens from around the world for the summer experience of a lifetime. Whatever you want to do this summer, BBYO Summer Experiences menu has the program to match your interests. Choose from a variety of international travel experiences throughout Europe, Central America and Israel; develop your skills as a community leader as you make an Impact in Boston, Chicago, Israel or Washington, DC; or strengthen your BBYO leadership at programs across North America. No matter which programs you choose, you'll have the opportunity to explore Judaism like never before, participate in hands-on service, and make lifelong friends.
Don't miss out on the summer of a lifetime: Scholarships are available here in Toronto! BBYO makes every effort possible to ensure that no participant is unable to attend due to financial reasons. Several scholarships are available for summer experiences for teens who qualify. Plus, BBYO is not the only place you can apply for a summer experience scholarship. Toronto's Jewish community is an excellent resource for you as well! A little time and effort on your part can make a big difference when it comes to your summer plans, and we'd love to help!
If you have any questions about BBYO Summer Experiences or scholarship availability, please contact Kevin Goodman, Executive Director, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
