WHAT IS B-Unbound?
B-Unbound was created to connect youth to supportive adults who share their interests and build a community of peers learning to navigate their way together. It has now evolved to build multigenerational networks of support around shared interests for both youth and adults. B-Unbound’s unique programming is supported by its proprietary technology that monitors and manages community relationships.
Partnering with trusted community-based organizations, B-Unbound trains advisors (Co-Navigators) who can guide Youth Navigators in using the B-Unbound platform to find Supportive Adults who share their interests. In addition, the Navigator Community offers peer-to-peer engagement and inspiration.
We are proud to announce the expansion of our program to Adult Navigators through partnership with local organizations.
As humans, we long for connection, exploration and doing what we love to do. We seek and are drawn to finding meaning in our lives and doing things that matter to ourselves and others. However, many of the current systems surrounding young people are more geared toward compliance, efficiency and regulation.
Built on over 25-years of research, experience, and success, B-Unbound operates as an expansion of Big Picture Learning's extensive offerings supporting youth agency, interests, relationships and search for meaning. B-Unbound offers an opportunity to break down the walls which narrowly define human potential and instead create a truly open-source world in which the map of a young person's future is expanded through their interests, the work they put in to get better, and their imagination.
