January 2021 EDITION
Each year, with input from our Match Support Specialists, Parents, Guardians, and Littles, we nominate our Bigs of the Year. This year we have twelve incredible men and women who have gone above and beyond during an exceptionally challenging year. We are excited to honor these amazing Bigs and share their stories in the upcoming weeks on our Facebook page. Congratulations to this year's nominees!

Thank you to Family Trust Credit Union for their continued support. Additionally, we would like to thank E.W. Process for their support with a gift of $1000.
As you may know, male mentors are our greatest need. We currently have 46 boys waiting for a mentor. January is National Mentoring Month, and there is no better time to become a Big! We are hoping to recruit at least 30 Men in the month of January. If you are already a Big, or unable to at this time, please refer a friend to our website below.
Even in a virtual world, Site-Based programming is up and running! Atrium Health Cabarrus launched their kickoff in November with 25 new littles. Matches at Ally, LPL Financial, CMC Mercy, Reid Park Academy, and Cornelius Elementary were happy to meet each other again when programming resumed in November. Our High School Bigs, Quicken Loans, and CMC – Main programs are scheduled to launch in January 2021. Parental involvement has been key this year in helping Littles to log on. 

Parents have shared their thankfulness for this program and the support it offers as many Littles are struggling with learning virtually. The time our matches spend together is intentional and focused on building and growing relationships. Lessons are still being taught and relationships continue to be formed in breakout rooms. Although we were not able to launch our programs in person, BBBS staff still made it a festive affair!
