Proven and Long-Lasting Positive Effects
BBBS helps improve kids’ self-esteem, academic achievement, and relationships with family and peers.
Each mentor relationship is unique and different and takes time to develop. They require matches to meet up to 2-4 hours per visit, 2-4 times per month for a minimum of one year.
BBBS supports friendships between adults and kids that develop over time. This proves to be highly valuable when the adult includes a kid in age-appropriate day-to-day activities.
