National Mentoring Month

January is National Mentoring Month, and we're celebrating all month long! Here are some of the ways you can help us celebrate the volunteers, partners, and supporters who empower the potential of more than 1,300 kids in our community.

Social Media Campaign

Connect with us on Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, Twitter, and the BBBSCI Blog for all of the latest and greatest in agency news! Throughout January, we'll be sharing special videos of our Littles, thanking our corporate recruitment partners, and other content that celebrates the impact of mentoring! If you're interested in writing a guest blog about your BBBSCI experience or providing content for January, please reach out to Bridget Feeney,  Marketing Coordinator, at [email protected]. Also, make sure to wear your green and black BBBSCI t-shirt on Fridays or wear green and black, take a picture, post on social media, and tag BBBSCI! Spread the word of our new look while encouraging your followers to consider volunteering with our agency.

Show Off Your BBBS Window Cling!

Be the talk of the town and make sure to display your BBBS window cling to raise awareness of our mission and show off your BBBSCI pride during National Mentoring Month! You might have noticed the window clings have to be displayed on the outside of the car windows. But that's not the only way to show it off! You can also display it on windows in your home and office, water bottles, laptops, filing cabinets, and notebooks! Find somewhere else fun to display your window cling? Snap a pic, post it on social media, and tag BBBSCI! 

Empower Potential - Become a Big

By becoming a Big, you empower boys and girls in our community to realize their full potential. And we're always looking for more Big Brothers, Big Sisters, Big Couples, and Big Friends! Interested in volunteering as a Big? Do you know someone who would make a great Big? Want to learn how you can help us defend the potential of more than 1,300 kids in Central Indiana? Click here or contact Joely Pope at [email protected] or 317-472-3722.
