Help Big Buddies Continue to Achieve Big Dreams!
Big Buddies is on the front lines fighting to support the youth in a county that is drastically underserved and wrought with disparities of both income and academic opportunity. The kids in our program often do not have a stable home life or strong role models. Our mentors help students with everything from math homework to processing the absence of a parent. We take pride in showing the kids what they can accomplish and support them in their journey.
Many of the kids in our program are more concerned with their family paying rent each month than being able to afford a ticket to any of the parks or zoos nearby, so we, with your help, would like to provide them with the chance to just be a kid again.
All year our mentors work to create a meaningful and supportive bond with their buddy. Our end of the year field trip is meant to be the culmination of that connection. This trip gives them a full day where they can laugh, experience new things, and enjoy the trip with their Big Buddies. This is what makes Big Buddies such an empowering and impactful program.
We are asking for your support because without you it wouldn't be possible to change the lives of both our children and our mentors every Monday night. With your gift, we can keep Big Buddies growing and thriving into the future!
