For years, Big Brothers Big Sisters (BBBS) of Metropolitan Chicago has supported thousands of children and adults by fostering one-on-one mentoring relationships. Known as the most respected mentoring organization in the United States, BBBS strives to help nurture children and strengthen communities. With the goal of helping every child realize their full potential, BBBS sets out to build strong relationships and futures. Their mentoring program has proven to help keep kids out of trouble, in school and on track to graduate. By building confidence, providing positive role models, and increasing community engagement, BBBS changes lives.
In times when our community needs a helping hand, BCD is privileged to support BBBS’s mission. BCD International CEO Jeff Burgess commended the program and the positive difference it makes in the lives of children.
“It’s amazing to witness the impact BBBS has on the children of Chicago. It truly is a nurturing program with the laser vision to make a positive difference in a child’s life, and then mentor and accompany them on that journey,” Burgess said. “These days, couldn’t we all use a little nurturing?”
