Join the International Leadership Network (ILN)

The ILN is an opportunity for members from every community, regardless of position or grade, to raise their hand to help build our Movement. Whether you want to plan events, envision new ways to strengthen our priorities, or build bridges between our communities across the world—there are endless ways for you to step up and lead. Learn more about the structure and opportunities in the ILN.

All current opportunities (unless specified in the description) will remain open and will welcome new Alephs and BBGs on a rolling basis.

This year, we're trying something new and rolling out ILN opportunities in waves. We'll have more opportunities than ever—some that are for the full year, some only for a few months, and everything in between. Make sure to come back and check for more.

Email or text +1-202-852-7019 if you need anything or have an idea for something you don't see here. Please share these opportunities with any Aleph or BBG that you think can make a difference in our Order. Everyone should have the opportunity to apply, so spread this to as many of your friends as possible (groups, emails, text, WhatsApp, GroupMe, etc.). Talk to you soon!

Step 1: Make Your ILN Profile

If you're not already signed in to JotForm, make sure you either create an account or sign in to one you already have. This will allow you to keep tabs on the committees and task forces you're interested in, as well as save them and come back.

Whether you're signing up for one opportunity or three, you only have to fill this form out once. Let us get to know you!

Step 2: Sign Up for Your Teams

Sign up for any of the ILN Opportunities that you are interested in. All of the forms are saveable, so feel free to save your work and come back later if needed.

Call for Legislation

The Executive Body, which consists of all council, regional, and country presidents, meets in-person twice a year and virtually throughout the year to vote on legislation from you and your peers to move us forward. We update the constitution, vote on our Movement Priorities, commit AZA and BBG to tackling big issues, introduce new campaigns and initiatives, and celebrate major achievements.
One of the most beautiful parts of AZA and BBG is the ability for any member to have a voice in what they'd like to see for our Movement. What's your vision for how we move forward?

Submit legislation for February Executives Conference by Monday, January 13, 2020.

One of the greatest legacies any Aleph or BBG can leave is starting a new chapter or launching a new community in their council, region, or country. This is one of the fastest ways to grow BBYO around the world.

But why would you start a new chapter? Great question. There are three important questions to think about when it comes to chapter start-up:

  1. Does your chapter have enough leadership opportunities for everyone involved?

  2. Are there specialized groups of people in your community that could form a chapter (e.g., Summer camp alumni or Russian-speaking Jews)?

  3. Is there a city, town, or suburb in your area that has Jewish people, but no chapter?

There are many reasons to start a new chapter. Utilize these tools below to guide you through the process for creating and sustaining a new AZA, BBG, or BBYO chapter.

Chartering Process

Follow these steps to officially launch your AZA, BBG, or BBYO chapter. If you're looking for a Name Change Petition, head here. For more information, check out the Chapter Chartering Process Overview.
