EXECUTIVE TEAM: Hector Batista
As we gear up for another successful
school year, I find myself reflecting on the importance of the mission and work
we do for the youth of NYC. As Executive Director, I find new
inspiration each day when I hear success stories of our Bigs and Littles. While
we serve over 5,000 youth annually, our organization continues to look for ways
to expand our reach to accommodate more children.
In New York City alone, there are over half a million children living below the poverty level. Many of them come from single-parent households. Life is hard for these children, and some of them face even more complex challenges, like being immigrant youth, living in foster care or having an incarcerated parent. These numbers mean that many children miss out on the simple childhood joys a stable family environment provides. At BBBS of NYC, we have found when these youth develop a new friendship through 1 to 1 mentoring matches, they are able to rise above and succeed.
Through different outreach programs, we are able to bring new light and awareness to the need for adult mentors in the lives of these children but we always need a hand!
- $2,000: Supports a Match for one year.
- $1,000: Supports a BBBS of NYC Scholarship fund.
- $500: Sponsors a Little to attend a college tour and follow up college counseling sessions.
- $100: Provide Littles with an ACT/SAT prep course workshop.
- $50: Supports a Match outing (visiting NYC landmarks, a sporting event or cultural activity).
Thank you for your kindhearted investment in our organization. BBBS of NYC fills a much needed void in the lives of these youngsters and it is through your trusted friendship that we are able to do so!
