Teen Social Activities

The Mandell JCC offers various social activities for teens to connect with each other and with the community. From charitable projects to scholarships, and social events, teens have plenty opportunities to make new friendships and grow.

Programs Include:

  • BBYO at the JCC
    B’nai B’rith Youth Organization is a pluralistic Jewish teen movement that offers opportunities for Jewish teens to connect with one another, volunteer in the community and celebrate their Jewish heritage. Teens are given responsibilities and develop leadership roles all while enhancing their public speaking, program planning, and community organizing skills.
