About RBI Austin
Get Your Child Involved
2022 Annual Report
This past year, God continued to provide the resources, community members, volunteers, finances, and partnerships to deepen RBI Austin’s impact.
Through our community’s faithfulness and support, we accomplished some pretty incredible things. Thank you for being a part of our community and for your faithfulness in supporting our 1,577 RBI Austin kids and families!
RBI Mentoring – A Story of Hope
We believe coaches are way more than just a leader of a sports team. Coaches are mentors and game changers. We believe that coaches can be some of the most influential adults in a child’s life — both on and off the field.
RBI Austin uses the incredible games of baseball and softball to engage and develop youth, and we are now recruiting coaches!
RBI Austin coaches have the unique opportunity to invest in the lives of their players and develop them into the future leaders of their communities.
Researchers found that after 18 months of spending time with their mentors, children with a mentor (compared to children without mentors) were:

- 27% less likely to begin using alcohol 27% 27%
- 52% less likely to skip school 52% 52%
- 37% less likely to skip a class 37% 37%
- 33% less likely to hit someone 33% 33%
