Hispanic Mentoring Initiative funded by Comcast Foundation
The Comcast Foundation has awarded $10,000 to support Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Flint’s Hispanic Mentoring Program. The funds will support the agency’s commitment to serve more Hispanic youth in one-to-one mentoring relationships that change their lives for the better, forever. The generous funding further strengthens the agency’s efforts to expand services to this diverse population. Comcast has a history of supporting organizations that celebrate the diversity reflective of its customers, communities and cultures they serve.
Latinos make up about 14 percent of the nation’s population, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. More than one-third of all Hispanics in the United States are under age 18. Over one-quarter of Hispanic children under 18 in the U.S. live in poverty.
We are committed to serving the needs of Hispanic children and families across the country. The Hispanic Mentoring Initiative continues the Big Brothers Big Sisters tradition of outreach to all at-risk youth by emphasizing the connection with Hispanic communities and the recruitment of Latino volunteers and Littles.
