Help us support our children during this time of need.
Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Big Bend's vision is that all youth achieve their full potential and our mission is to create and support one-to-one mentoring relationships that ignite the power and promise of youth.
Without access to technology, the youth in our program will experience further isolation, disconnection from friends, difficulty with virtual learning, and lose access to their mentor. By offering our youth a usable device and subsidizing internet capabilities, the youth in our program will not only have the technology needed to keep up with their counterparts from higher income households, they will also have a mentor already in place to assist them in navigating the educational platforms being utilized by their teachers and school districts.
Due to safety concerns of COVID-19, it’s become more important to keep Big/Little matches connected now more than ever before. By following social distancing guidelines outlined by the CDC, BBBS has been focused on keeping existing Big/Little matches connected by providing innovative and creative support through phone calls, text messages, digital learning platforms and other technology enabled engagement tools.
We are committed to provide the additional support needed to ensure these relationships stay strong during these uncertain times.
