Big's & Little's

Mentoring a child has been proven to have many positive aspects on their lives. It helps most simply because it shows a child that someone cares about them, and that they are not alone in dealing with daily struggles.
  • Mentors help keep kids in school, and they help improve self-esteem. 
  • Mentors can help teens to build communication skills and good academic habits. 
  • Having a mentor can improve higher lifetime earnings and reduce juvenile crime. 

With so many positive benefits, we strive to continue to place our little’s with a positive life mentor in hopes of building valuable bonds, much like big sister and little brother Julie & Kevin. Little brother Kevin explains how Julie’s and his relationship has grown saying, “When I don't have anyone else to trust, I can always go to Julie.” 

Much is the same with Little and Big duo, Skyler & Bill. "It's always nice to have someone to talk to", says Skyler when asked how his Big has impacted his life.

“It’s a simple thing that can lead to something so great for both the little and the big.”

Here at Big Brothers Big Sisters it’s so important to us to be able to keep giving both kids and adults the opportunity to build this amazing bond, and to help bring up strong youth into today’s society.
