In our Big Futures program, your child maintains a relationship with his or her Big even after high school graduation. By providing additional resources and support, this extended match mentorship helps youth navigate one of the most pivotal times in their lives– the transition into young adulthood.
Helping students prepare for success doesn’t just mean college-prep work, however. Big Futures supports Matches around the three “E’s” – Education, Employment or Enlistment, and serves as a resource for youth wanting to attend college, enter the workforce or enlist in military service after high school. BBBS’ helps Little Brothers and Sisters find the most useful resources for their individual needs, enabling them to access information on job readiness, resume building, college degree requirements, work/life skills or enlistment requirements.
By extending the match relationship into the transitional years of young adulthood, Big Futures provides Littles with stability, support and guidance as they begin to expand their knowledge of the larger world and find their unique place within it.
