Send gned. We will whold your name if you so requelL Please limit lettm to 250 Director Answers Dear Editor: In your April ]3 issue, a letter appeared criticizing the B'nai Brith Youth Organization for enforcing its policy regarding attendance at youth conventions. We agree that young Jewish people need encouragement to participate in Jewish activities and BBYO will continue to provide a vehicle for, and encourage, such participation. It is our hope that many youth will choose a Jewish youth group activity as means for developing their skills and growing. ,at times, youth have to make difficult choices. This is part of growing up and learning. Our staff are responsible for providing the highest quality program for those attending conventions. Effectiveness of conventions relies heavily in development of group unity and group process; some- thing difficult to accomplish if your group changes. Individual programs through- out the weekend tie into an overall goal. We want our youth to participate in all aspects of the program, / to P.O. Box 44 Altarn0nte Spfin@s FI. 32701. BBYO Letter Judaic and education, as well as social. ,all youth sign form applications, which indicate that they must attend all activities. We do not mislead anyone; we make this very clear well in advance. BBYO is responsible for all youth at activities and finds it difficult to control a situation where numbers of youth are coming and going. Occasionally, exceptions are made, but in general we need to be consistent with all our youth. If we allowed individuals to miss parts of convention due to extra curricular activities, work, etc., there would be numbers of individuals who would take advantage of the opportunity creating in our eyes an uncontrollable and ineffective program.
