Our partners make it possible
The Johnson & Johnson African American Leadership Council (AALC) has launched a new initiative to help Big Brothers Big Sisters make a positive impact on youth, families and our nation. Johnson & Johnson has demonstrated its commitment to diversity and inclusion and understands that being inclusive is a business imperative, as its future employees and customers will come from the growing diverse communities that Big Brothers Big Sisters serves.
The new partnership with the AALC will engage its employees to become directly involved with Big Brothers Big Sisters agencies across the country. With over thirty chapters, the AALC will be challenged with the initiative to become active in volunteering, donating, and mentoring.
This initiative has 3 goals:
1. Expand mentoring programs to impact more at-risk children in meaningful, substantive ways that are proven to produce positive results.
2. Reduce the Wait List significantly through strategic plans to engage J&J employees in volunteering and becoming BIGS.
3. Increase financial resources through fundraising and donating that will enable Big Brothers Big Sisters to match more one-to-one volunteer mentors with the thousands of children who are enrolled and waiting to be matched with their Bigs, as well as to recruit and successfully match more volunteers with more children.
There are lots of ways you can get involved today:
