Thank you for visiting my Big Brothers Big Sisters of New York City Race for the Kids part of the Nickelodeon Worldwide Day of Play page! Any amount, great or small, helps Big Brothers Big Sisters of New York City change the lives of underserved children by providing them with caring adult mentors who help to expand their horizons and enrich their futures.
Currently there are 508,503 children living below the poverty line in NYC. 43% of children in NYC are from single parent homes. Every year, BBBS of NYC helps connect more than 5,000 of these kids with a "big" who can help them believe that their present situation doesn't have to be their future.
By donating to my team you are helping to support educations through funding SAT prep classes, educational workshops, & college tours/applications. You're also helping us to finance background checks for volunteers so that we can match them with children in need. 97% of our "littles" graduate from high school and move onto college because of the influence that our programming has on their lives.
Please help us to support these kids and make a difference in their futures.
