Big Brothers Big Sisters 100 Men in 100 Days Campaign

As the Lubbock community continues to grow, the number of families that come to Big Brothers Big Sisters for emotional support for their children continues to grow with it.

Big Brother Big Sisters of Lubbock is excited to announce the start of a new volunteer recruitment initiative: "100 Men in 100 Days." The campaign runs from August 1 through November 8. Please help by volunteering, by putting an informational poster at your business or by inviting a BBBS representative to speak to your church, civic, social or business group.

In the United States, parents are the central source of emotional, financial, and social support for their children. Many youth are also fortunate to be part of larger networks including grandparents, other relatives, neighbors, and community and religious organizations that offer additional influences, not all positive. There are more youth today facing negative input than ever in the South Plains. So, more children lack the additional positive involvement of a caring adult needed to overcome the challenges each face daily. Big Brothers Big Sisters of Lubbock is continuing to fill that void in Lubbock County.

As a part of the campaign, BBBS is hosting a "Back-to-School Picnic." Staff and board members will be available to answer questions and Bigs, Littles and their families will be in attendance. The event is open to anyone interested in volunteering or enrolling their child or children in the program. Food, drinks, music and games will be provided.

Back to School Picnic

Saturday, August 16

We currently have 100 boys that are "ready to be matched" with a positive mentor.  We are asking for 100 men to be that positive influence in their life.
