About AZYC

Our Organisation

The AZYC is the roof-body organisation of nine Zionist Youth Movement which operate in Australia and New Zealand. The AZYC seeks to represent, support, and connect Zionist youth irrespective of political and religious ideology. Our nine youth movements foster empowered and engaged youth (ages 8-22) who are active in their communities and look to make a difference in the world. It is our belief that every Jewish child deserves a youth movement experience.

The youth movements that are under our umbrella include: Betar, Bnei Akiva, Habonim Dror, Hashomer Hatzair, HaTzofim, Hineni, Netzer, JAZY and CaTZ.
