Little Sister Barb was no different. She’s never been a big fan of school, and transitioning to virtual learning at home didn’t help. It was a test of patience, but nothing she couldn’t handle with Big Sister Traci by her side. “Barb has been through some tough stuff, but I admire that she keeps trying,” says Big Sister Traci. Through the challenges of the pandemic, the duo started creating gratitude lists to boost their self-esteem and stay positive.
Barb will be a junior this fall, and Big Sister Traci is looking forward to the day she graduates and is able to explore the world. “She’s still discovering more about herself and has so much potential ahead of her,” says Traci.
After such a challenging year, now is the time to work together to achieve a common goal - helping youth navigate the road ahead.

We're sad to announce the in-person celebration for Bright Futures is canceled.⠀
Due to the rise in COVID-19 cases and out of caution for the health and safety of our community, especially our community's youth, the decision has been made to cancel the in-person portion of this year's event.⠀
But, the fundraising must go on. Bright Futures is our largest fundraiser of the year, and your support is crucial as we try to reach our $130,000 fundraising goal.⠀
