Our programs

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Community One-to-One Mentoring

The "gold standard" in youth mentoring. Mentors and mentees meet in the community two to three times a month for at least one year to build strong relationships. BBBSGC case managers provide support, supervision and guidance.

Population(s) Served

The goal of this project is to reduce the number of African American boys living in Baltimore City who are on our agency waiting list for a mentor.

Population(s) Served

Mentors meet their mentees weekly at school during the academic year for regular activities and to help with homework. BBBSGC coordinates onsite. Corporations such as Frito Lay, T. Rowe Price, Stanley Black and Decker and the U.S. Naval Academy provide mentoring relationships in schools across our service area.

Population(s) Served

Corporate employee volunteers mentor high school students at sponsoring workplaces including Under Armour, Wells Fargo and Legg Mason. These three-year programs are designed to radically broaden the youths’ exposure to career opportunities and develop critical job skills.

Population(s) Served

The Positive Pathways Program serves youth ages 14-18 who have been or are at risk of being involved in the juvenile justice system with one-to-one mentoring, leadership skills development, college and career preparedness, job placement and restorative justice activities.

Population(s) Served

A collaborative violence prevention program with Johns Hopkins University that matches youth who have been referred by the Emergency Department with a BBBSGC mentoring volunteer to participate in a curriculum-based research project to solve problems without violence. (Parents are also taught communication techniques.)

Population(s) Served

An experiential program for elementary/middle school students. Youth spend three hours a day, twice each month at a participating workplace. BBBSGC coordinates onsite, travels with students to and from school, and organizes twice-yearly field trips. Through a partnership with Junior Achievement, BBBSGC offers curricula on professionalism and business.

Population(s) Served

A new summer reading program with Bigs encouraging Littles to read classic children’s books, with kick-off and completion celebrations.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Short-Term Goals
Increase individual giving and decrease reliance on government support.

Achieve 1,000 active youth mentoring relationships (mentor-mentee pairs).

A specific focus on finding more male mentors.

Long-Term Goals
Create a new strategic plan.

Double the number of site programs through increased outreach to corporations and other organizations.

Expand our existing model to provide more links to college and career readiness for youth.

Short-Term Goal Strategies
Our Brighter Futures campaign is focused on spurring individuals to invest in youth mentoring.

Our new Volunteer Recruitment Director is building partnerships with companies and community organizations to recruit new volunteers.

Our Vounteer Recruitment Director is working on this by targeting men's organizations.

Long-Term Goal Strategies
Our President/CEO, leadership staff and Board of Directors will be working on a new strategic plan in 2016.

To increase site programs, we are optimizing the increased interest post-unrest.

We will partner with agencies, private and other entities to provide more links to college and career readiness for youth.

BBBSGC has been developing its expertise in mentoring in Baltimore and Maryland since 1952 Our dedicated staff, leadership and volunteers helped us exceed our FY2015 goals for improved school attendance, fewer suspensions, reduced risky behaviors (fighting, using alcohol or drugs) and increased socio-emotional outcomes (better relationships with parents, peers and authority figures; improved self-confidence; increased community engagement). In addition, we surpassed our goal for the number of children and youth who participated in community activities.

Our current wait list includes over 1,100 children and youth. Your financial support will assist us in successfully completing more mentor-menteee matches.
