personal development and career mentoring program
BigTimers, a 501(c)(3) foundation, was created to provide kids from underprivileged backgrounds with various mentoring opportunities. We facilitate relationships between kids and mentors so that these boys and girls will have occasions to participate in internships, camps, and experiences with our mentors.
Our mission is to highlight that despite a child’s difficult if not seemingly impossible circumstances and adversity, they have the ability to overcome these circumstances just like our mentors. We want to help instill certain values and principles that these children can apply throughout their lives.
Our motto is No Excuses!
We help young people build the competencies they need to achieve their long-term goals and lead healthy, productive lives.
We connect young people with positive role models who serve as advocates in helping them achieve their goals and make healthy decisions.
We expose young people to amazing leaders and engage them in youth-led civic engagement opportunities to help them make a difference in their communities.
We help young people learn all the basics of finance - including how to make money, budget and save - and empower them to take control of their financial future.
