Volunteer to Start Something
What if every child finished high school, went to college or university, got a job and gave back to our community? Wouldn't that be something?

Couples match of the month Sept 2014 RJ,, Alex and Krista - circa 2009

Match of the Month - 8 years strong!

Alex, Krista and RJ have been matched for 8 years as a couples match! In that time a lot has changed- each of them has developed new interests.

RJ has become a teenager and recently graduated high school, and Alex and Krista have become parents to two beautiful children! In the early years outings included a wide variety of activities such as watching movies, playing sports, attending BBBS Group Recreation events, cooking and more.Now their go-to activity is spending quality time as a group, with Alex and Krista’s children, who RJ regards as his younger siblings.

Despite the evolution of their friendship over the last 8 years one thing has remained the same- Alex, Krista and RJ share an amazing, one-of-a-kind friendship which will undoubtedly continue after RJ’s 18th birthday and the graduation of their match at the end of the month.
