Carson McGill, BBYO Program Director  

The B’nai B’rith Youth Organization (BBYO) provides programming for 8th-12th graders. The leading worldwide pluralistic Jewish youth organization, BBYO is shaping the lives of thousands of teens each day by providing them with leadership opportunities and by fostering friendships and meaningful Jewish experiences. In BBYO, teens engage in activities that promote growth and development through youth-led programming, community service and a chance to interact with participants around the world. Check out BBYO’s St. Louis Council, where you will have the chance to make new friends, discover new interests and talents and have fun. There is a one-time membership fee, which lasts until the teen graduates from high school. 

Four chapters, Shira, Esperanto, Einstein & Yachad (2 girls and 2 guys), meet on Tuesdays at 7 p.m. at the J’s Marilyn Fox Building in Chesterfield. Ya’ad and Sababa (1 girl & 1 guy) chapters meet on Wednesday at 7 p.m. at the Staenberg building in Creve Coeur. All chapter meetings run August through May.
