Local Action – Global Impact
Our Young Leadership Network is a vital force to nurture future B'nai B'rith leaders.
Through events at embassies, missions, disaster rebuilding sites and fundraisers, we have a network of up and coming leaders who meet, exchange ideas, have a chance to learn from world leaders and lend a hand to a struggling community.
The goal of the network is to attract younger leaders and create programs that will appeal to young professionals and families. B'nai B'rith has geared specific programs toward young adults, ages 21 to 40.
There are opportunities for young professionals, students, singles and families. There are many active and growing young leadership groups around the United States.
While attending YLN events is the best way to get involved, we can always use your financial support in planning events, programming, and overall nurturing future B'nai B'rith leaders.

YLN Package: Policy Forum 2017 in Prague, Czech Republic – $275.00 dollars
B’nai B’rith International attended Alpha Epsilon Pi's (AEPi) 103rd annual convention, teaming up with the fraternity for a community service project and also receiving the second installment of a $100,000 grant from AEPi. The funds will be used for B’nai B’rith’s disaster relief program, which dates to 1865. AEPi bestowed the grant during a special convention luncheon with some 700 AEPi brothers and alumni in attendance.
“This generous grant will help our rebuilding efforts in communities around the world that are struck by a devastating disaster,” said B’nai B’rith International President Gary P. Saltzman, an honorary AEPi brother, upon receiving the grant at the convention. “B’nai B’rith is grateful for our longstanding friendship with AEPi, and thankful for all of its support. It’s inspiring to see AEPi volunteers take the time to restore regions impacted by natural disasters.”

Young Leaders on both trips took part in a seven-day program that included official briefings with government officials and legislators, cultural experiences, a visit to Hiroshima and a home-stay.
