The right role modelsThis is where you start a relationship with one.
Could your child use a Big?
For over 40 years, due in large part to private donations, BBBS of Siouxland has been able to recruit, screen, match and support mentoring relationships that have changed the lives of thousands of young people across Siouxland — one Little at a time.
You’ll feel the impact as much as your child.
A study for Big Brothers Big Sisters found that kids matched with a Big Brother or Big Sister:
• Are more confident
• Are more likely to steer clear of drugs and alcohol
• Do better in school
• Get along better with their family and friends
• Feel better about themselves1
