Community Engagement

Community Engagement develops partnerships, collaborations, and programs with organizations that offer coordinated services, linking youth and families to opportunities. BBF hosts numerous public events, including a summer block party series, Friday Night Lights, at the BBF Center. The organization also partners with Chicago Police Districts 10 & 11 to facilitate the North Lawndale Police Youth Baseball League (NLPYBL), where police officers and civilians serve as coaches, umpires, and volunteers for children ages 9-12.
