Prior affiliation with BBYO is not necessary to participate in any BBYO Passport experience.
Summer programs for high school and middle school teens represent our flagship experiences. Since 1956, BBYO has provided eye-opening journeys to Israel, and now to 18 different countries! Although every program is different, they all share the same core elements – active touring, cross-cultural interactions, and new friendships with fellow Jewish teens of all backgrounds and from around the world.
- Israel Experiences
Teens who travel to Israel during their high school years develop a profound understanding of Jewish history, can better appreciate the miracle of modern Israel, and come away with stronger sense of their own Jewish identity — without any specific denominational approach. Israel programs are at the heart of BBYO Passport. With more than eight different types of Israel experiences offered each summer, there is an exceptional journey available for everyone.

- Worldwide Experiences
International teen travel presents a unique opportunity to reach out and touch our world, while gaining a new perspective on life at home. Experiencing the diversity of the world through the lens of a teen is a once in a lifetime opportunity. Explore the cultural treasures of Western Europe, retrace the story of Jewish life in Poland, join a service experience in Bulgaria, explore the natural beauty of Costa Rica and South Africa, or stay closer to home on an adventure in the American West.

The March of the Living is a two-week international experience where teens from around the world come together each year and bear witness to the destruction of the Holocaust in Poland and then travel to Israel to rejoice in the Jewish Homeland. The program commemorates Yom HaShoah (Holocaust Memorial Day) marching from Auschwitz to Birkenau and celebrates Yom HaAtzmaut (Israeli Independence Day) in the streets of Jerusalem. Learn More >>
Beyond is an Israel-based gap year experience for Jewish students following their high school graduation. Participants can choose between a 5-month or 9-month experience. The program weaves together academic study, leadership development, community service, experiential travel, and Jewish life in Israel. The program is designed for those seeking a unique launching point into adulthood. Learn More >>
