A Big ImpactWith proven results.

 
Our Impact.

Each time BBBS pairs a child with a role model, we start something incredible: a one-to-one relationship built on trust and friendship that can blossom into a future of unlimited potential.

A positive impact on childrenEmpowering them to succeed.


 
The Study.

Yearly we conduct a Strength of Relationship Survey with our matches to see how it is going. We find that they are less likely to gravitate towards those risky behaviors when with someone like a mentor.


The Results.

We found that after 12 months of spending time with their Bigs, the Little Brothers and Little Sisters, compared to those children not in our program, were:


They also found that the Littles were more confident of their performance in schoolwork and getting along better with their families.

The Big Brothers Big Sisters Match.

Our one-to-one matches are the driving force behind making an impact on children. A Big Brothers Big Sisters’ match is carefully administered and held to the strictest standards. Agency staff strives for matches that are not only safe and well suited to each child’s needs, but also harmonious and built to last. The entire matching process, from the initial screening to the final pairing—and beyond—is made possible by your financial support.

But don’t just think of us as simply matchmakers. We provide ongoing support and supervision to the Big, the Little, and the Little’s family. We offer training and advice to help ensure that the match is working for everyone involved. We receive our own ongoing training and consulting from the Big Brothers Big Sisters national office. It is this web of support that helps maximize the likelihood that a Big Brothers Big Sisters relationship will thrive.


The Impact.

The matches shared everyday activities: eating out, playing sports or attending sports events, going to movies, sightseeing, and just hanging out together. But what matters to the children are not the activities. It is the fact that they have a caring adult in their lives.

Because they have someone to confide in and to look up to, they are, in turn, doing better in school and at home. And at a time in their lives when even small choices can change the course of their future, the Littles are also avoiding violence and substance abuse. In addition to the lives of Littles being changed for the better, the impact is contagious.
