Big Brothers Big Sisters Virtual Lunch & Learn!

October 21 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Empower the Potential of Children
For more than 70 years, Big Brothers Big Sisters (BBBS) of Eastern Massachusetts has partnered with underĀ­-resourced families to provide their kids with transformational, one-to-one professionally supported relationships with caring adult mentors, so that their children reach their full potential. We accomplish this mission with Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion as core values. We believe that we maximize our impact and truly thrive as an organization when perspectives are diverse, our culture is inclusive, and our practices model the equity we want to see in the world.
It is our belief that one of the solutions is to bring people together that are different from each other. With the nature of our matching and with the recognition that our kids and Bigs come from different places, we are helping everyone to come together. Not only have children’s lives been upended by the COVID-19 pandemic, as a country we are facing the unavoidable reality of the tragedy of racism. This inequity directly impacts all of the kids we serve, many of whom are children of color. As adults, how we respond and support children in our community will impact how they will view themselves, and their potential in the world. Our kids need you to be part of the solution and that is why our mission is more urgent than ever.
Join us on Wednesday, October 21st for a virtual Lunch & Learn to learn more about the different programs available and the benefits of volunteering. You will also have an opportunity to hear current MGH employees discuss their time as Bigs, the experiences they’ve had while involved, and how they balance volunteering with their personal and professional lives.
