National Recreation Foundation Spotlight
Big Brothers Big Sisters of Metropolitan Detroit
This grant is in its third year of funding to continue support of the Sports Buddies
initiative to dramatically increase the number of men serving as mentors and
significantly reduce the waiting time for at-risk boys seeking a mentor. Sports
Buddies is a structured program schedule with male-focused activities that will
garner all of the benefits of Big Brothers Big Sisters’ traditional programs
while engaging in healthy recreational activities through participation in new
athletic experiences. Sports Buddies Big Brothers meet their Little Brothers in
a group once or twice a month to either play sports or attend a sporting event.
BBBSMD plans the activities and provides all equipment, tickets, and
Parks & Recreation Magazine is a NRPA member benefit. Log In or Join NRPA to continue reading.
