enroll a child
Give your child the gift of a mentor - and a new friend.
When people think of mentoring programs, they think of Big Brothers Big Sisters.
As an established youth organization, for more than 100 years we've worked to develop
youth mentoring programs that work. Our experienced approach to recruiting, screening,
matching and supporting our mentoring relationships has resulted in thousands of
lasting relationships, and helped change the lives of young people across the country.
A study on the Big Brothers Big Sisters youth organization 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 themselves

parents are our partners
We'll work closely with you because your input is important. Not only do you provide
information about your child's strengths and needs, but you approve the selection
of the Big Brother or Big Sister. Once the match is made, parents remain closely
involved in several key ways.
