We want to invite all 6th - 12th grade Jewish teens and their parents to a fun BBYO Jackson Hole Kick-Off event at Hole Bowl. There will be bowling, pizza, snacks, information and BBYO swag! Meet our new BBYO advisor, Arthur Blue. Though only 8th - 12th graders can formally become BBYO members, we are inviting the 6th and 7th grade cohorts to join us in our locally sponsored events.
The JHJC is offering to pay for each new member's lifetime BBYO membership fee of $149 if you are founding members of the JHJC Chapter.
We hope that you encourage your teen to learn more about this extraordinary youth-led leadership movement that provides incredible opportunities for international travel and exclusive leadership conferences, camps and training.
