#HispanicHeritageMonth is an opportunity for BBBS to communicate our belonging, inclusive and welcoming mentoring culture through storytelling and awareness, while highlighting the cultural significance of the Hispanic and Latin community.
25% (1 in 4) of Littles identify as part of Hispanic/Latin American/LatinXcommunity
10% of Bigs identify as part of Hispanic/Latin American/LatinXcommunity
While we celebrate cross-ethnic matches in our Network, we will continue to focus on recruiting more Bigs of color, especially men. Our goals for Hispanic Heritage Month include:
»Highlighting and celebrating Hispanic matches within the Network
»Reinforce Big Brothers Big Sisters as a resource for the Hispanic, Latin American and LatinXcommunity
»Encourage mentorship within and outside of Hispanic, Latin American and LatinXcommunity
»Encourage parents/guardians to sign their children up for our programs
