BBYO’s growing community program in Vancouver is seeking a full-time Regional Director. This professional will build BBYO throughout British Columbia and manage the JCC of Greater Vancouver’s teen outreach and engagement strategies year-round – on the JCC campus, in local schools throughout Vancouver, and at popular venues throughout the area.

Overview:

The Jewish Community Centre of Greater Vancouver (JCCGV) is a recreational, cultural and social organization serving the community around Oak Street and 41st Avenue. The JCC Teen Department strives to provide an inclusive, fun, safe, stimulating and supportive environment for all teens. We are leaders, mentors, advocates, and positive role models enabling youth to grow, develop a positive sense of self, and a life-long commitment to community.

BBYO is the world’s leading pluralistic, Jewish teen movement and is the Jewish community’s largest and fastest growing platform for reaching and inspiring Jewish teens, built upon 97 years of storied history. We do this challenging and invigorating work through our partners in more than 725 local, teen-led chapters across nearly 60 countries, at hundreds of weekend retreats during the school year and across a rapidly growing suite of global exchanges, campaigns and movement initiatives all year-round. Over the summer, we run dozens of immersive experiences including extensive Israel travel, missions and community tours across six continents, and a myriad of leadership camps.

The Director of BBYO Vancouver at the JCCGV will build experiences that foster engagement and create meaningful connections with and among high school teens across the greater Vancouver community. Leveraging relationships with Jewish and secular community organizations, this professional will build teen-led BBYO chapters throughout the area.
