Juvenile Justice Mentoring, Bbbs
BBBS of NYC is considered the founding agency of the nation’s youth mentoring movement. Since 1904, our mission has been to give all children in New York City who face adversity an opportunity to experience a strong, enduring professionally supported one-to-one mentoring relationship with adults that will help change their lives for the better. We partner with families, volunteers, organizations, and the community to inspire positive change in all.
The goal of this program is to reduce delinquency and prevent re-arrest. A combination of intense case management services and one-to-one mentoring helps troubled youths make positive changes and stay out of trouble.
