In collaboration with Take Stock in Children, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Miami’s Continuing Education program is committed to giving Littles tools for a lifetime of success by providing a comprehensive range of services.
Supported by BBBSM’s Continuing Education staff, the program outlines carefully structured goals for high school students and includes guidance related to:
- Preparing students for standardized testing
- College applications and enrollment
- Finances in higher education
- Post-secondary scholarship awards
- Career development
In addition, all high school-aged Littles, their Bigs, and parents are invited to regular college-readiness programming throughout the school year. Once enrolled in college, BBBSM is committed to the success of our students by providing further support services to make sure students graduate college and get on track for their careers.
Thanks to our generous donors, the Continuing Education program provides over $3 million in scholarship money every year to our local youth who have shown the determination to invest in their future. With the combined efforts of our Five Millers Continuing Education Program and Take Stock in Children, an average of 250 high seniors a year receive between $500-$20,000 in scholarship money for post-secondary education, and many recipients are the first in their family to attend college.
