Saturday, June 3, 2023 - Date of going Over the Edge
Our Mission: To create and support one-to-one mentoring relationships that ignite the power and promise of youth.
Since 1977, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Northern Sierra (BBBSNS) has operated under the belief that inherent in every child is incredible potential. As the nation’s largest donor- and volunteer-supported mentoring network BBBSNS makes meaningful, monitored matches between adult volunteers (“Bigs”) and children (“Littles”), ages 3 through young adulthood in our communities. We develop positive relationships that have a direct and lasting effect on the lives of young people.
Our mentoring programs benefit children who face adversity and stressful challenges in their day-to-day lives due to factors beyond their control. By partnering with parents/guardians, volunteers, and others in the community, we are accountable for each child in our program achieving:
- Higher aspirations, greater confidence, and better relationships
- Avoidance of risky behaviors
- Educational success
About the Event
BBBS of Northern Sierra are excited to announce the 2nd annual Over the Edge event. If you are looking for a new way to challenge yourself, or if you are an adrenaline junkie, or if you are hoping to make the world a better place, or if you just need an excuse to do something out of the ordinary, then we are hosting the perfect event for you! We invite you to Go Over the Edge and descend down the side of a building in Lake Tahoe, on June 3, 2023.
You can show kids everywhere that by surrounding themselves with the right teams, people who are supportive and positive, they can turn obstacles into opportunities. “Rappeler's” have the opportunity to enjoy an exciting adventure, mark something off their bucket list, AND make a direct positive impact on the lives of disadvantaged youth in our community. BBBSNS relies on the generosity of our community members for support. We hope you will be a part of the success of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Northern Sierra and join us as we go Over the Edge!
