The Goizueta Foundation Grant Funds Mentoring Program for Hispanic Youths

$1,791,193 Grant Will Fund ‘Camino al Exito’ (Road to Success) Pilot in Georgia

Big Brothers Big Sisters has received a three-year $1,791,193 grant from The Goizueta Foundation to introduce Camino al Exito, an innovative mentoring program for Hispanic children.  The program is designed to match students with mentors with the goal of keeping them in school, helping them advance to the next grade level, and preparing them to attain post-secondary education and/or employment.

The grant will allow Big Brothers Big Sisters to launch the high-impact, Hispanic youth education initiative via a pilot project in Georgia.  Developed from insights gleaned from the results of a six-month planning grant from The Goizueta Foundation, the initiative will serve 730 students who face adversity.  The Camino al Exito initiative takes Big Brothers Big Sisters to the next level in its service to Hispanic children, volunteers, families and communities.
