B’nai Brith Youth Organization (BBYO)
Grades 8 – 12
The Stamford JCC partners with BBYO, the world’s leading pluralistic Jewish teen movement, to offer Jewish teens the opportunity to connect with one another, volunteer in the community, celebrate their Jewish heritage, prepare for leadership roles, and travel the world together, all within a Jewish context. Teens are given realresponsibilities and develop leadership skills that relate to their everyday lives.
By practicing public speaking, program planning and community organizing, BBYO teens build the skills that not only make them more confident and capable of navigating the challenging teen years but also prepare them to make positive contributions to the world around them as adults. BBYO meets at the Stamford JCC every other Monday. Membership dues are $149 for all 4 years of high school and 8th grade.

Junior Boxing Club

Ages 8 & up

Evander Holyfield began his boxing training when he was 8 years old and weighed 65 pounds. He went on to become an Olympic medalist and four-time world heavyweight champion. Your child may not become a heavyweight champion, but he or she can reap several benefits from the sport of boxing. Boxing will teach your child how to throw punches, including the jab, cross, hook and uppercut. Correct body mechanics needed to throw these techniques with the most speed and power will also be taught. Boxing offers children several psychological benefits, including improved confidence, self-discipline and determination. For more information, contact Lori Price at 203.487.0967 or

Teen Fit

Ages 13+

You keep your skin clean. You condition your hair. You’re eating right. You’re doing all you can to look and feel great. But are you missing out on an important part of a healthier lifestyle? No matter what your age or shape, you should exercise daily. Not only does exercise tone your body so you can wear your favorite jeans, it strengthens your muscles, keeps your bones strong, and improves your skin. And there are more benefits of exercise – increased relaxation, better sleep and mood, strong immune function, and more. This class will make you stronger, faster, more powerful and make you feel better by performing high-energy functional movements that are natural and safe.

Inclusion/Special Needs


R&R (Recreate & Relate)
High School/Young Adult
R&R is an active social program that meets during the academic year. We meet at the JCC to participate in activities together such as cooking, seeing theater performances, varied sports events, pool parties, volunteering, and much more, which are not only fun but also enhance team-building skills. The social groups provide youths with a structured and safe environment to develop their social skills and build relationships. The program is open to all abilities and can benefit those with a variety of needs, including, but not exclusive to, ADD/ADHD, social anxiety, communication and learning differences, cognitive delays, and those on the spectrum. The goal of R&R is learning to work together!
