Big Brothers Big Sisters
For more than 100 years, Big Brothers Big Sisters has operated under the belief that inherent in every child is the ability to succeed and thrive in life. As the nation’s largest donor and volunteer supported mentoring network, Big Brothers Big Sisters makes meaningful, monitored matches between adult volunteers (“Bigs”) and children (“Littles”), ages 6 through 18, in communities across the country. They develop positive relationships that have a direct and lasting effect on the lives of young people.
A donation to Big Brothers Big Sisters of America will be put to immediate use in supporting the United States’ largest and most-effective youth-mentoring organization. The network of 370 agencies supports over 250,000 children annually. Big Brothers Big Sisters know that mentoring changes lives for the better, forever because data is collect and analyze that tell that story. Big Brothers Big Sisters seek to put children on a path to lifelong success and change the trajectories of their lives in positive ways. To achieve the mission, Big Brother Big Sister commits to measure and be responsible for specific youth outcomes that focus on:
- educational achievement
- avoidance of risky behaviors (especially juvenile delinquency)
- higher self-esteem, confidence, and the ability to relate to others
