LET'S MAKE THE CONNECTION
Together, we WILL make the connection.
We are thrilled that with the help of our community, we have raised $50,000 for our matching campaign for a total of $100,000 raised to continue to match children with caring adult mentors!
- We know that positive relationships deliver a sense of hope, purpose, and self-esteem.
- We know kids succeed in the classroom and beyond when they feel loved, safe, and secure.
- And we know that if we can make the connection, it will help a child develop resilience and impact our community’s future health, safety, and stability.
The connections between “Bigs” and “Littles” and their families build hope, helping children achieve more than they may have ever dreamed.
With the help of our generous community, we are continuing to help youth achieve their full potential.
Without you — and many other friends we count on for financial support each year — we can’t do as much as we’d like to improve the lives of children in our community through professionally supported one-to-one mentorship with proven positive results.
Thank You for making kids a priority.
Children served by BBBS programs face exposure to adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) much more than the general youth population. BBBS Community and School-Based Mentoring Programs are evidence-based to have the most significant positive impact on the youth that need us most. Mentoring develops key social and emotional skills that children need to build resilience, face challenges, and achieve future successes. This is good for everyone in the family, AND in our COMMUNITY!
