Keep Kids Connected

A National Campaign to Defend the Potential of our Youth

Even in the best of times, the need for mentoring support for kids in our Capital Region community is great. In the face of a global pandemic, the need is greater than ever before.

Now more than ever, our Bigs are needed to guide, nurture, and defend the potential of each Little, even as they meet virtually or while social distancing. Our staff and Bigs are working tirelessly to be there in the face of the great need we’re seeing—so many have been adversely impacted.

We are excited to announce that we have partnered with our sister BBBS agencies across the USA & Canada to launch a national Keeping Kids Connected campaign. While many organizations are shutting their doors, BBBS agencies across North America have expanded our programming beyond mentoring to offer families assistance with securing food, medical attention, crisis intervention, and so much more.

But, there's still a lot of work to do. And we need YOUR help!

On August 7th from 2:00pm-3:00pm EST we will host a virtual event that will be aired nationally and will contain testimonials, interviews, and media that highlights the essential work that Big Brothers Big Sisters has achieved during the COVID-19 pandemic. We invite our local Capital Region friends, volunteers, and supporters to join us for this hour-long session highlighting our achievements, celebrating our successes, and sharing the work still to be done.

We hope that you will be inspired to spread the word about the good work that BBBSCR is doing right now in our community and donate generously to sustain our vital Capital Region mentoring efforts.

This event will stream nationally on social media platforms including Facebook and YouTube, with a program to include A-list celebrities and influencers who will share their stories and support for BBBS.
