2021 Impact Report

God tells us that two are better than one (Ecclesiastes 4:9), and we’ve seen this to be true.

Within community, individuals are supported, encouraged, challenged and developed. Within community, we can both do more and endure more. Within community, bonds are deeper, perspective is clearer, and life is better.

Because of the support of our amazing RBI Austin community, 1,353 RBI Austin kids were engaged in a positive, Christian community this past year. Thank you for being a part of our team and for playing a part in providing that community for all of our RBI Austin kids.

RBI Mentoring – A Story of Hope

Why Coach?

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:

  • 46% less likely to begin using illegal drugs 46% 46%
  • 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%
