100 MEN IN 100 DAYS CAMPAIGN
Unity Among Brotherhood. “Working together to build a movement and save a generation!” Big Brothers Big Sisters of America (BBBSA) has developed a historic partnership with, Alpha Phi Alpha, Kappa Alpha Psi and Omega Psi Phi Fraternities. The purpose of this movement is to address the national shortage of African American men stepping up to volunteer as mentors in Big Brothers Big Sisters programs. These men are needed to help at-risk African American boys, on waiting lists for Big Brothers throughout the country, to succeed in school, avoid violence, enjoy healthy relationships and put these at risk young men on the path to success.
The national charge has outlined a goal for 2010 of at least 1,000 fraternity men to become Big Brothers to help these at-risk youth in need of guidance. Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Charlotte is joining in this movement at the local level, reaching out to the Charlotte area fraternity chapters to recruit 100 male volunteers to begin serving the approximate 350 children currently on the waiting list (which is made up of mostly African American boys).
Join the movement to help us change the way children grow up in America, and in Charlotte, one child at a time. Inspire hope for our youth by: volunteering, donating, asking a “frat brother” to become involved and seeking other opportunities with Big Brothers Big Sisters.
