As we celebrate this special week (April 14, 2024 through April 20), we wanted to take a moment to shine the spotlight on the real heroes of BGCBigs—our volunteers! 🎉

From mentoring bright minds out in the community and creating safe and nurturing environments at our Clubs, to sharing their wisdom as in-school mentors and guiding students as tutors and so many other vital roles, their commitment and passion postively impact the lives of thousands of children and youth in our community—creating change for the better.

This past year, more than 1,900 volunteers helped to provide safe spaces and positive mentoring relationships to more than 3,900 children and youth in our community. Our volunteers are cherished members of the BGCBigs community—a community with a place for everyone.

To celebrate YOU, we’ve put together this short video with help from some very special people

From the bottom of our hearts, we want to express our sincere gratitude to our volunteers. THANK YOU!

Together, we’re changing the lives of children and youth with one conversation, one experience at a Club, one donation or gift, and one mentor and volunteer at a time.

From Everyone at BGCBigs
