What is Man Made
"The joy of children laughing around you ..these are the makings of you" -- Curtis Mayfield
The making of a man is realized through the vessel of life, community and experience. Integrity, responsibility and respect don’t happen in a vacuum. Boys are made into men within environments that promote health and positive self-esteem. Join Big Brothers Big Sisters in becoming one of one thousand new men to support the enrichment of young boys in your neighborhoods, community centers and churches.
Big Brothers Big Sisters (BBBS) of Atlanta is launching the “Man Made” recruitment initiative. Big Brothers Big Sisters of Atlanta (BBBS) is looking to bridge the gap between young boys and men by creating a relationship that fosters aspiration, enlightenment and meaningful, long-term relationships. Currently, the BBBS program has over 1000 young males looking for a Big Brother to step-up and responsibly offer a role model to positively change their lives.
The primary goal of the Man Made campaign is to motivate 1,000 men to sign-up to be active participants in the Big Brothers program within a 100 day period. The Man Made Program will conduct outreach throughout Fulton, Dekalb, Gwinnett and Cobb counties.
For over 47 years, BBBS mentoring programs have served children and families via community-based and site-based programs in 12 counties. Examples of these programs include Mentoring Children of Incarcerated Parents (MCIP), the Hispanic Mentoring Program (HMP), Mentoring through Corporate Partnerships, Mentoring Towards College (MTC) and more.
