Big Brothers Big Sisters serves children who face serious adversity in their lives. We believe that changing the course of these young lives can in turn change our community’s future. Studies show that our mentoring services:
- Help kids stay in school, which can eventually mean a reduction in poverty and unemployment
- Help kids avoid risky behavior such as bullying, which can lead to safer schools and neighborhoods
- Help kids learn the importance of helping others, growing up to be more civic-minded adults.
