About Big Brothers Big Sisters
Big Brothers Big Sisters, the nation's largest donor and volunteer-supported mentoring network, holds itself accountable for children in its program to achieve measurable outcomes, such as educational success, avoidance of risky behaviors, higher aspirations, greater confidence and better relationships. Partnering with parents/guardians, schools, corporations and others in the community, Big Brothers Big Sisters carefully pairs youth, or Littles, with screened volunteer mentors, or Bigs, and monitors these one-to-one mentoring matches throughout its life. The first Big Brothers Big Sisters Youth Outcomes Survey, released in 2012, substantiates that its mentoring programs have positive academic, socio-emotional and behavioral outcomes for youth in areas linked to high school graduation, avoidance of juvenile delinquency and college or job readiness.
Big Brothers Big Sisters provides children facing adversity – often of single or low-income households or families where a parent is incarcerated or serving in the military – with strong and enduring, professionally supported one-to-one mentoring relationships that change their lives for the better, forever. This mission has been the cornerstone of the organization's 100-year history. With nearly 340 agencies across the country, Big Brothers Big Sisters serves nearly 630,000 children, volunteers and families. The organization is currently engaged in a nationwide search to reunite with alumni mentors, mentees, donors, family, staff and board members. Learn more at www.BigBrothersBigSisters.org.
