Our partners are essential in helping Big Brothers Big Sisters make a critical impact on the children we serve. The following are a few examples of important partners who support the work we do with Latino children.

The Goizueta Foundation
Big Brothers Big Sisters is honored to have a long history of partnership with The Goizueta Foundation. The Foundation's mission is to assist organizations that empower individuals and families through educational opportunities to improve the quality of their lives. Indeed, the Goizueta Foundation was an early supporter of Big Brothers Big Sisters' active engagement of Latinos in our programs across the nation.

Met Life
The MetLife Foundation has been a partner since 2008 and has invested $2 million in Big Brothers Big Sisters to strengthen the Hispanic Mentoring national program and most recently support our parental engagement strategy to help Latino children plan post-high school secondary education.

OJJDP
The Big Brothers Big Sisters Nationwide Strategic Direction reinforces our dedication to expanding and improving the impact our mentoring programs have on the youth that are at the greatest risk of entering, or are already in, the juvenile justice system. The firm commitment to averting youth from juvenile delinquency has manifested itself in the creation of the Big Brothers Big Sisters Juvenile Justice Initiative, a three year initiative funded by the Office of Juvenile Justice. 20% of new matches served by this program are Latino.

Univision
In February 2010, Univision, the nation's leading media company serving Hispanic America, launched a comprehensive, multi-year national education intiative called Es El Momento (The Moment is Now) in partnership with the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, the U.S. Department of Education, educators, and civic and community leaders from around the country. The Es El Momento initiative is aimed at improving academic achievement among K-12 Hispanic students with a specific focus on high school graduation and college readiness. Big Brothers Big Sisters is a proud national partner in the Es El Momento campaign.

Hispanic Scholarship Fund
As the nation's leading Hispanic higher education fund, HSF works to address the barriers that keep many Latinos from earning a college degree. In addition to scholarship opportunities for deserving Latino students, HSF offers a broad range of outreach and education programming to help students and their families navigate the rigors of college life.

Complexity and diversity have accompanied the Latino population's dramatic growth over the last 20 years. Rapidly changing technology has magnified communications challenges and opportunities.
