Nutmeg Big Brothers Big Sisters is launching an innovative mentoring program this fall called Mentor 2.0. The program will be conducted primarily online through emails and instant messages, augmented by monthly in-person get-togethers.

Its purpose is to help high school students prepare for college and career by matching them one-to-one with college-educated mentors.

CREC's Academy of Science and Innovation in New Britain will collaborate with Nutmeg Big Brothers Big Sisters on Mentor 2.0, enrolling its entire incoming ninth grade class in the program.

Bob's Discount Furniture announced that its 2018 golf outing raised $635,000 for children's charities. The money will benefit organizations selected by Bob's Discount Furniture's Charitable Foundation, including the Nutmeg Big Brothers Big Sisters, Camp Rising Sun, Family & Children's Aid, The Jimmy Fund, Connecticut Children's Medical Center and Cardinal Cushing Centers.
