Do you want to make a big impact in the Jewish community? Do you dream of being in a job that enables you to implement change and innovation? If so, this is your chance to make that dream come alive!
BBYO is looking for awesome talent to join our team as a Regional Director in Nassau Suffolk Region, Long Island NY.

This is your chance to make an impact by engaging and inspiring Jewish teens to do great things.
You love working with teens. You’re creative, quick on your feet and like your job to change every day. You’re not the kind of person who wants to sit behind a desk.

Manage broad-based fundraising efforts and relationship building
Attend summer camp (but this time you’re in charge!) as you lead teen leadership programs

How to run a small business as you develop skills in budgeting, membership, marketing, sales, HR and event planning
How to manage a budget and track and analyze business metrics
How to work with a global team and across organizational and geographical boundaries
Relationship building as you network with and travel to other BBYO communities
