OUR VALUES

While each BBYO Passport experience is unique, they share these common programmatic goals:

COMMUNITY

Teens will develop a sense of being part of a community of travelers – living in the same space, sharing meaningful experiences, and forming lasting friendships.

JEWISH LIFE

Teens will nurture a love and appreciation for Jewish life in all its forms around the world while embracing values of mutual respect and learning.

SAFETY & FUN

Each experience optimizes fun while maximizing safety; teens will be able to live the fullest expression of adventure travel without fear.

CULTURAL UNDERSTANDING

Teens will engage in experiences outside of their comfort zone and will return home with greater confidence, sense of self, and independence.

PERSONAL GROWTH

Teens will be exposed to new cultures and ideas, and in so doing will develop the capacity to see their own life from a broader perspective.

ROLE MODELING

Teens will benefit from invaluable connections with their trip staff, viewing their staff as role models.
