Biographical / Historical

The Atlanta chapter of AZA has helped shape the lives of its members since 1924. We have a network of over 250,000 alumni, many of whom are leaders in the fields of business, entertainment and politics, and attribute much of their success to the experiences they had in BBYO. Throughout BBYO's history, the organization has brought leadership training, community service opportunities, Jewish education, a connection to Israel, and positive identity to thousands of Jewish youth in North America and beyond. Although the structure may differ depending upon the needs and design of the Jewish population, the basis is the same; BBYO provides fun and meaningful Jewish experiences for Jewish teens everywhere.
