Career and College Readiness Program for our Littles
What is Big Futures?
When our Littles enter high school, we continue to support, coach, and provide resources for matches as they work toward graduation. BBBSCI works with community partners to promote career and college readiness for Littles and their families as they explore post-graduation opportunities. High school-aged Littles, along with their Bigs have the opportunity to take part in our Big Futures program activities which prepare them for their graduation from high school and our program.
2019- 2020 Big Futures Program Opportunities:
• A Graduation Kick Off event featuring a Roadtrip Nation screening
• A college prep fair at the Center for Leadership Development

Additional Scholarship Opportunities
