About This Campaign

Discovery Festival is a community initiative focused on acquainting local youth with the STEAM professions. STEAM is an acronym for Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics. Many local youth have an aptitude in these fields but have not yet discovered their talents.

This event is a fun, creative way for local companies and organizations to introduce STEAM based careers and education paths to children across New Mexico. There will also be a focus on matching STEAM professionals with interested youth in a Big Brothers Big Sisters mentoring relationship. The proceeds from this event will help fund the STEAM Mentoring program and will provide scholarships to youth who qualify.

Admission to this event is FREE to all children and their families, and events are currently being held in two locations in New Mexico: Click here to learn more about attending a Discovery Festival near you.

Campaign to Support Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central New Mexico

For more than 100 years, Big Brothers Big Sisters has operated under the belief that inherent in every child is the ability to succeed and thrive in life. As the nation’s largest donor and volunteer supported mentoring network, Big Brothers Big Sisters makes meaningful, monitored matches between adult volunteers (“Bigs”) and children (“Littles”), ages 6 through 18, in communities across the country. We develop positive relationships that have a direct and lasting effect on the lives of young people. By partnering with parents/guardians, volunteers and others in the community we are accountable for each child in our program achieving:• Higher aspirations, greater confidence, and better relationships• Avoidance of risky behaviors• Educational success.

Our Programs Start Something.  Here's the proof. National research has shown that positive relationships between Littles and their Bigs have a direct and measurable impact on children’s lives. By participating in our programs, Little Brothers and Sisters are: •more confident in their schoolwork performance•able to get along better with their families•46% less likely to begin using illegal drugs•27% less likely to begin using alcohol•52% less likely to skip school.
