Nearly half a million children in Metro Atlanta live in communities with low or very low child well-being. Our vital mission is to recruit volunteers to become mentors to children facing adversity. Our goal is to serve more children and increase positive outcomes by matching them with an adult who will ignite their full potential.

WE ARE DEFENDERS OF POTENTIAL

BBBSpatterndop2

We view mentors and mentorship a little differently than other organizations. In a world of causes, we make a difference by creating professionally supported one-to-one matches for kids who want to realize their full potential. For us, it's more than offering advice. It's building meaningful connections for a bigger future.
