BBYO's renowned leadership model of experiential democracy, with teens leading other teens and creating their own BBYO programs under the guidance of adult volunteers and staff, is carried out through AZA chapters (for young men) and BBG chapters (for young women).

Local chapters meet every Wednesday (September through May, excluding holidays and school breaks) from 6pm to 8pm as follows:

Prosserman JCC
Dufferin Clark CC
Schwartz/Reisman Centre
Room 1-23

BBYO Connect provides pre-high school students with safe, enriching programming, fun activites and meaningful involvement in the community. Click here for details.
