What’s Good For Kids Is Good For Business.

The Twin Cities is home to one of the most socially-engaged, philanthropic business communities in the nation. Dozens of local corporations and foundations provide the crucial financial support that allows us to match youth facing adversity with caring adult mentors.

And research shows that employees place a high value on meaningful corporate engagement. It has a positive effect on recruitment, job satisfaction and retention.

We invite your organization to go Big, Bigger, Biggest and help young people change the trajectory of their lives.
