ATLANTA — On September 30th, at Main Event venue, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Metro Atlanta (BBBSMA)  proudly launched its Big Futures Social Event in an effort to bring community awareness to the transformative power behind the Big Futures Program. Undoubtedly, the Big Futures Team's impactful presentation was the highlight of the evening marking the opportunity for High School Littles, their Bigs, and caregivers to gain a deeper understanding of all that Big Futures can offer such as Workplace Mentoring, Behind the Scenes Career Exposure Events, and monthly High School Hangouts just to name a few.

Attendees were also given insight into the strategic plan behind delivering these invaluable resources. The goal was to not only inspire but empower these young minds with reassurance as they embark on their journey of self-discovery and future planning. 

To aid in this, all 29 Littles in attendance received a specially curated pack from the Big Futures team filled with a wealth of materials and tools to encourage thoughtful consideration of their goals and aspirations — not to mention brand-new Big Futures swag! Laughter and good times echoed throughout the venue as Littles then got the chance to challenge their Bigs at their favorite arcade games as well as bond over delicious eats.

The evening cultivated an atmosphere of insightful, yet fun, engagement creating a shared experience with memories that will now last these matches a lifetime which truly shows that It Takes Little to Be Big!
