Share Your Feedback: BBBS Teen Programming

Free
We want to hear from you! Give your feedback and receive a $25 Target gift card!

We want to hear from you! We’re seeking Littles ages 12+ and Alumni Littles to offer their input on how to make our teen programming reflective and relevant to their needs and interests. This feedback is important in helping us improve with the goal to make this program designed for and by our teens. For example, we would love to get ideas on what to call the speaker series program!

  • Dinner will be provided between 6 and 6:30 p.m.
  • Limited to 20 matches with Littles ages 12+ and Alumni Littles
  • Each participating Little/Alumni Little will receive a $25 Target gift card

BBBS is excited to be piloting a Teen Match Advisory Council and a Speaker Series program this coming school year! Attending matches will have the opportunity to learn about these new, upcoming programs during the event:

Teen Match Advisory Council: An ongoing program for matches with Littles ages 12+ that will continue this session’s purpose. Enrolled youth will lead in designing and evaluating BBBS teen activities and events that are reflective and relevant to the needs and interests of themselves and their teen peers.

Speaker Series Program: An ongoing program for High school Littles and Alumni Littles to develop public speaking skills with opportunities to speak on their mentoring experiences.

College Readiness and Scholarships: BBBS has the opportunity to pilot a new program in the fall of 2023, where a group of Littles can apply to be in our early scholarship program. This program would run all four years of high school, and each you the participants can “earn” money towards a scholarship for postsecondary education.
