BGCBigs Anti-racism Statement

Dear Families, Volunteers, Staff and Community: BGCBigs is dedicated to supporting thousands of children and youth across our communities that we serve.
Many of the young people we serve and the volunteers that we support represent communities that are and have been affected by racism.
As allies, we are committed to the ending of the societal and systemic racism that has been built upon years of complacency and acceptance of the status quo.
Racism simply cannot be tolerated in any form, in any way.
Three of our core values – Belonging, Respect and Speaking Out – are central to our approach of inclusion in our organization. It is imperative that we work hard to take responsibility, to lead, and to help demolish the inequities that racism has created.
Our goal at BGCBigs is to ensure that our children, youth and families are supported to have access to opportunity.
Our youth have the right to be full participants in society and to walk without fear of racism.
We cannot stand by – we will have the difficult conversations and open dialogue that are necessary to move forward to build a just society for all.
We at BGCBigs are committed to being an active part of the solution.

How BGCBigs Supports Young People

Our young people find themselves in vulnerable situations and facing adversities such as mental health issues, family violence, identity issues or poor living conditions, which put these youth at risk of not reaching their full potential.

With the guidance and support of a mentor, these risks can be avoided, and our young people can gain the confidence to achieve more.

With the support of our funders and volunteers, we ensure that every youth has what they need to succeed.

Through life-changing programs, community-based services, and relationships with peers and caring adults, BGCBigs helps children and youth develop the skills they need to succeed.
