JCC Teen Program
Director: Sara Pisarz
The JCC sponsors its own Teen Youth group, a highly sophisticated and developed teen group run by teenagers and assisted by a professional staff member.
The teen program has two unique facets. One being a charter member of BBYO (B'nai B'rith Youth Organization), a Jewish based youth organization concentrating on Judaic cultural values, education, recreation, drama & art and athletics.
A $75.00 membership fee is required to participate in BBYO.Register today by going to b-linked The BBYO activities are held throughout the year at various regional locations. The BBYO Program offers a unique opportunity for teens to be part of a total program at whatever level they wish, depending on their interests and desires.
The second facet of our teen program requires no membership fee and is done on a local level. The aim of the teen program is to develop individual growth of our teens and to provide an atmosphere for group interaction. These goals are achieved through:
1) Social Programming: Dances, Hayrides, Movies, Socials and Parties.
2) Social Action: Teens volunteer with community based projects such as telethons, hospital visits, senior citizen programs, etc.
3) Fund Raising: Flower sales, UJA Campaign and other events are used to raise money for the individual group or special project.
4) Intergenerational: College students, teens & senior citizens meet for an exchange of ideas.
