Our mission is to create and support one-to-one mentoring relationships with trusted adults which ignite the independence and creativity of youth.
On a human level, mentors show us that we are not alone. They show us that, in this vast world, there is someone on this journey who cares, is invested in our future, and is with us every step of the way. When a child is mentored, they are 55% more likely to go to college, 78% more likely to volunteer in their community, 90% more likely to mentor others, and 130% more likely to pursue leadership positions.
When you support Big Brothers Big Sisters, you change lives for children in our community.
