"My friends' heroes are celebrities and athletes, but my hero is my Big Brother Bill."
- Danlin, Little Brother

our impact on children
Bigs and Littles have fun together - and create memories that last a lifetime. We call it "Little moments - Big magic." Research on our volunteer programs points to the powerful, positive, lasting impact Bigs have on children's lives. Littles are:

  • 52% less likely to skip school
  • 46% less likely to begin using illegal drugs
  • More likely to get along with their families and peers

real life stories

When Bill Simmons first met Danlin, he was a rebellious 10-year-old. Six years later, Danlin credits Bill, his Big Brother, for turning his life around and keeping him focused on school and athletics. Danlin isn't Bill's only fan; he was recently named Big Brother of the Year for the State of California.
