Posted: 05/26/2021


You love working with teens. You’re creative, quick on your feet, and you like your job to change every day. You’re not the kind of person who wants to sit behind a desk. You have an infectious personality, and you love getting others to join you in changing the world. You’re a problem solver and you’re good at juggling multiple priorities at once.


We’re a global network of passionate professionals excited to make a difference in the lives of Jewish teens. We are the Jewish community’s largest and fastest growing pluralistic platform for reaching and inspiring Jewish teens during the school-year with 600 teen-led local chapters and over 100 weekend retreats along with a plethora of summer experiences including Israel visits, global travel programs and leadership camps. We work as a strong and inclusive team and every day is different by design. We are fast-paced, high energy and results driven.

  • Work with teens to attract and retain members to build and grow chapters
  • Manage, recruit and train volunteer advisors

  • Plan programs in the community for Jewish teens in grades 8-12
  • Recruit new members to join BBYO and to attend summer programs
  • Facilitate the planning process, alongside teen leadership and colleagues, for regional programs including overnight conventions
  • Work alongside colleagues to bring new, innovative, and fun ideas to the community
  • Attend summer camp (but this time you’re in charge!) as you lead teen leadership programs

What You’ll Learn as an Associate Regional Director: 

  • How to run a small business as you develop skills in budgeting, membership, marketing, sales, HR and event planning
  • How to analyze and track data to drive decision making
  • Global thinking as you work with an international team across organizational and geographical boundaries
  • Influence and lead as you inspire others to action
  • Relationship building as you network with and travel to other BBYO communities

  • A bachelor’s degree or higher
  • Experience with youth or teens is preferred.
  • Ability to work in-person in the Washington, DC area (Rockville, MD, District and Howard County)
  • Ability to travel as needed and to staff a summer leadership program at a location in the U.S. for 2-3 weeks each summer.
  • Unrestricted authorization to work in the U.S. without holding a visa or sponsorship.
