Every Little deserves a Big. A mentor can change the life of a child.
When children and teens have the influence of a caring adult,
they are more likely to avoid risky behaviors and to focus on academics.
Today’s youth face a variety of challenges, and being matched with a
Big Brother or Big Sister can help them navigate these challenges and reach their potential.
At Big Brothers Big Sisters, we’re always looking for more mentors of BBBS of EDC to be mentors. We have boys and girls of all ages ready and waiting to be matched with a role model. So tell your friends to sign up to become Bigs. They can do all the fun things they love to do already, like see movies, play video games, and go hiking, only now they’d get to enjoy it with a child who can truly benefit from it.
More than 70% of our children waiting for a Big are boys. Research shows that having the positive influence of a Big Brother makes a real difference in a boy’s life.
