Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Houston Kicks Off the 30 Men In 30 Days recruitment campaign to strike out the waiting list for over 500 Houston young men – And the starting pitcher is Lance McCullers.

In May 2023, 718 children were on BBBS Houston’s waitlist; 502 were boys.

During the month of June, BBBS Houston was making a concerted effort to honor the request of young men searching for a mentor. BBBS made its focus on recruiting at least 30 new male mentors to end the wait.

The “30 Men in 30 Days” campaign targets predominantly male interest groups, events, and spaces to activate their interest in becoming Big Brothers. Through the agency’s efforts, BBBS Houston hopes to match waiting Little Brothers with the mentors they deserve.

Big Brothers Big Sisters shared it has proudly partnered with the City of Houston for over 72 years and serves as an ally for thousands of children and their families throughout the metro area. Many things have remained the same during this time, including the quality of its matches, the level of support to volunteers, and child safety as a first priority. BBBS said another constant in its history is the demand for services from young boys who need a positive male influence.

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Houston and Lance McCullers challenged the City of Houston to step up to the plate in June and help strike out the waiting list of 502 Houston young men looking for a positive mentor. To get involved, visit the Big Brothers Big Sisters website.
