The Reaching New Heights Gala supports our work to provide one-to-one mentoring for youth experiencing hardships that put them at risk of not discovering their human potential. The mentoring relationships we create and sustain are more vital than ever, as kids grapple with daily challenges which have been compounded by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Kids who participate in BBBS’s mentoring programs experience tremendous benefit – they’re less likely to pursue risky behaviors like substance abuse, more likely to succeed in school, and consistently report higher levels of self-esteem.
Kids with Bigs also find solace in a person that they can confide in. For example, a Big Brother in our program found his Little Brother in an emotional moment. The Big Brother was there for him and the Little Brother said, “I can be vulnerable and know you won’t cower.”
More kids in our community need access to these transformative 1-1 mentors, and your support of BBBS can help us meet that need.
We need your support.
More than 85% of our funding comes from contributions from private households, businesses, and foundations. The Gala is an opportunity for supporters to gather, celebrate, and invest in the potential of our community’s youth.
