Throughout the year, BBBS hosts activities that help shape the lives of youth in our program. These activities, called Life Skills workshops, are aimed at teaching young ladies and gentlemen the foundations of becoming a successful adult. Youth participating in these workshops learn responsibility, communication, resilience and leadership. BBBS partners with several state and local groups to provide these workshops free of charge to all participants.
