Brett Musick recently became the
newest member of the BBYO Great Midwest Region's amazing staff. To
continue our series on highlighting new youth staff in the Chicago area, we
asked him to tell us a little about who he is, where he's from, and why he's so
excited to join the Great Midwest Region!
I am so excited to have joined the BBYO Great Midwest
Region as the new associate regional director. I just moved to Chicago from
Cincinnati Ohio where I worked at the JCC as the youth and family program
assistant. I attend the University of Cincinnati where I studied Judaic Studies
and Organizational Leadership. Growing up in Cleveland, I was an active member
of my Temple’s youth group and NFTY. During my time in Cincinnati I was a
USY/Kadima Advisor and more recently a BBYO advisor. These experiences
led me to wanting to work with teens in a larger capacity.
During my time as a BBYO advisor I learned more about how
the organization operates and the leadership skills our teens gain from being a
member. I am honored to play a role in the experiences teens have during high
school and am looking forward to doing what I can to elevate these Jewish
moments for our teens.
My excitement for the year ahead continues to grow as I
learn more about Jewish Chicago and BBYO. Throughout the year we have three
regional conventions, leadership opportunities for all of our teens,
International Convention in Orlando, an inter-regional basketball tournament,
and so much more!
