Cubs Charities has awarded Big Brothers Big Sisters of Metropolitan Chicago with a $5,000 grant in support of our Project Breakthrough Mentoring Program. This is the Cubs third year of support for Project Breakthrough, which matches high school sophomores with a corporation’s employee base in one-to-one mentoring matches. This three year program guides the students through high school graduation, helping them prepare for college and career expectations as well as working through activities around goal setting and preparation for post high school success.

Cubs Charities focus on health, fitness, and education is evident from their financial support and outreach throughout metropolitan Chicago. Project Breakthrough has been a great fit for Cubs Charities due to the outcome data that shows our youth are excelling in the classroom as they prepare for post graduate success with their Big Brother/Sister. Along with their financial support, the Cubs have opened their doors to unique opportunities for our Bigs and Littles.In a partnership with Buses for Baseball, mentoring matches were honored at Wrigley Field this April during the Cubs-Brewers series. Cubs players Kris Bryant, Dexter Fowler, Jason Heyward and more came to meet with matches before the game to take pictures, sign autographs and interact with Littles and their Bigs.

From the players to the front office, the Cubs have shown their support of Big Brothers Big Sisters for more than twenty years! We are proud of the Cubs continued support of our organization and of the Project Breakthrough program.
