Thank you for visiting my Big Brothers Big Sisters of New York City's 14th annual Walk for the Kids page!
As a new Program Manager, this will be my first year participating in the Walk for the Kids! I am so excited to be a part of such an amazing cause! I absolutely love working with such a diverse population of families and volunteers. I can honestly say that I wake up everyday feeling so grateful of the position that I am in, where I get to be a witness to the growth of these kids. The amount of gratitude that they have for their mentors and the blossoming bond they share continues to amaze me. I am a believer in the power of mentorship!
Since 1904, our mission has been to give all children in NYC who face adversity an opportunity to experience a strong, enduring professionally supported one-to-one mentoring relationship with adults that will help change their lives for the better.
Big Brothers Big Sisters of NYC has proven that the the power of Mentorship DOES HAVE AN IMPACT. Our agency was able to serve over 5,222 children this past fiscal year with great results! Of those children, 99% were promoted to the next grade, 97% of our High school seniors graduated, and 96 % of our High school seniors were accepted into college.
Any amount, great or small, helps Big Brothers Big Sisters of NYC change the lives of underserved children by providing them with caring adult mentors who help to expand their horizons and enrich their futures.
