You can be a Hero.

We know that mentoring changes lives. Right now we have 298 active matches and another 193 children on our wait list.

That’s 193 kids who need a friend and role model and 193 children who we have the opportunity to help right now. You are the solution. You can bring hope to a child in our community and the ripples you create will literally change the course of their lives and the face or our community.

On November 28th we kicked our annual Hero Campaign and raised $8,200 in donations and pledges! Thanks to generous supporters like you, we are well on our way to meeting our goal and getting some of those kids off of the wait list. All funds raised by the Hero Campaign will go toward enrolling, creating, and sustaining 12 Hero Matches.

A $100 gift makes you a 2017 Hero. All Heroes who give by December 31st will have their names published in the Albany Business Review. Additionally, you will get a behind the scenes look at what we do a BBBSCR. You’ll get enrollment and match updates throughout 2018 to keep you in touch with the matches you create today.

An $15 gift brings one child to and from our site-based program to meet with their college age mentor, and a $250 provides a site-based program with their budget for an entire year.
