Better Boys Foundation (BBF) believes in the Power of Potential. Within the walls of the state-of-the-art BBF Center, we have created a solid foundation to nurture hope, build confidence, and give children and youth the strength and support they need to build a brighter future. We serve boys and girls ranging in age from five to 18 through innovative out-of-school time programming, as well as address the needs of young adults through scholarships for post-secondary study.
