Help to build brighter futures for Chicagoland youth
Look what you’ve started
Hats Off to Our Graduates and a Great Year!
In the last year, BBBSMC provided 1,700 youth facing
adversity with positive, caring adult mentors. We have completed over 63 year
end recognition ceremonies in our Site Based program, and honored our largest graduating class at the 4th Annual Graduation Gala
on July 14th!
Tickets are now available for
our 5th Annual Big Bash on Saturday, November 12, 2016. Big Bash,
hosted by the leadership board of BBBSMC, will bring 500 young professionals to
Harold Washington Library to enjoy live music from Standing Room Only, fantastic
food, and high end beer and wine from Constellation Brands. Big Bash generates
over $100k annually to support our mission! Be a part of something big - get your tickets to Big Bash.
Now through September, when you bring your own reusable bags
to Whole Foods Market, you can donate your 10 cent bag credit to Big Brothers
Big Sisters of Metro Chicago. Through the One
Dime at a Time program, we are excited to work together with Whole Foods to develop healthier,
stronger communities across Chicagoland.
Big Brothers Big Sisters of Metro Chicago was featured on Fox 32's Good Day Chicago on June 23, 2016. Darlene Hill interviewed one of our four-year matches, who are a great example of the commitment, friendship, and mentorship that makes our program so successful and gives kids a safe place to learn and play.
