Teen Connect is a fun, social program for teens in grades 7 and 8! It is a BBYO type experience offering social and meaningful experiences that will serve as a gateway to continued involvement in Jewish life.
Teen Connect offers teens a variety of experiences to help bridge the gap between middle school and high school. The purpose is to provide these students with a positive experience in which they can get together with camp, school, and synagogue friends, as well as meet new friends.
Teen Connect allows middle school students to begin experiencing the privileges and obligations of being a member of the Jewish and general communities. A heavy focus is on the social aspect of programming, allowing for connections to be made which in turn will foster a stronger Jewish future. Teen Connect is a pipeline program that leads directly into BBYO.
