Big Brothers Big Sisters is the nation’s oldest and largest youth mentoring organization. Our mission is to help boys and girls, most of whom are considered at-risk and living in single-parent homes, achieve their full potential through long-term personal relationships with carefully screened and caring volunteers. On average it costs over $600 to match one child in our program. Children that are matched, when compared with those in similar situations who are not matched, as a whole do better in school and at home, and avoid substance abuse at a pivotal time in their lives, when even small changes in behavior or choices made can change the course of their future.
