"Cultivating Compassion, Leadership, and Community Spirit from a Young Age"

BBKids, an integral program of Briggs & Barrett Project, is designed to instill the values of giving, leadership, and community service in children. Inspired by the belief that it's never too early to make a difference, BBKids engages young minds in activities that not only benefit their communities but also foster personal growth and development.

The Essence

bbkids helping in community

Founded on the principle articulated by Melissa West, co-founder of Briggs & Barrett Project, BBKids embodies the idea that "you make a living by what you get; you make a life by what you give." This program encourages children to contribute positively to the communities that have shaped them, nurturing a generation that is both compassionate and proactive.

How BBKids Works

Launched in May 2022, BBKids has rapidly become a fundamental part of our outreach, inviting children from all states, not just Nebraska, to actively engage in making a positive difference. This inclusive initiative empowers kids to support their communities in various ways, from simple acts of kindness to neighbors, volunteering at beloved local charities, or participating in our community service events. It's a platform for kids everywhere to learn the value of helping others, demonstrating that no act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted.
