A Big Impact for Our Community

This, combined with a global pandemic and many of the other stressors that are facing students in the Twin Cities area, makes the demand for quality mentorship even greater. BBBSTC knows that mentored youth excel. For example, 94% of BBBS high school seniors graduated on time versus 70% outside of the program. Additionally, 94% of Littles improved academic performance and social competence. Littles are also 75% more likely to receive a college degree and 46% less likely to begin using illegal drugs. BBBSTC is making an impact in the Twin Cities community and has been for over 100 years.
