HOUSTON (KIAH) – Big Brothers Big Sisters (BBBS) kicks off the ’30 Men In 30 Days’ recruitment campaign to strike out the waiting list for over 500 local young men. In May 2023, 718 children are on BBBS Houston’s waitlist; 502 are boys. Now, Houston Astros starting pitcher Lance McCullers is helping them out.
30 Men in 30 Days campaign will target predominantly male interest groups, events, and spaces to activate their interest in becoming Big Brothers. Through the agency’s efforts, BBBS Houston hopes to match waiting Little Brothers with the mentors they deserve.
Big Brothers Big Sisters has proudly partnered with the City of Houston for over 72 years and serves as an ally for thousands of children and their families throughout the metro area. Many things have remained the same during this time, including the quality of our matches, the level of support to our volunteers, and child safety as a priority to meet the continued demand for services from young boys who need a positive male influence.
BBBS Houston looks to make a concerted effort to honor their request for a mentor and focus on recruiting at least 30 new male mentors to end their wait. Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Houston, and Lance McCullers would like to challenge the City of Houston to step up to the plate this June and help strike out the waiting list of 502 Houston Young Men looking for a positive mentor.
