Nick's help in getting Jeremy to the maturity level that he has gotten him to, has kept him out of trouble, gotten him through high school, gotten him into Washburn Tech, where he is today, and where he will be in the future.Debbie, Grandparent
For the better, forever.
Our goal is to match Kansas youth facing adversity with caring, adult mentors in professionally supported one-to-one relationships to change their lives for the better, forever.
As a partner to parents and guardians of our youth (Littles), volunteers (Bigs), and communities, we are committed to seeing our Littles:
- Achieve higher aspirations, greater confidence, and better relationships
- Avoid risky behaviors
- Reach educational success
Harris Interactive conducted an independent study of former Littles who are now adults and found:
90% of alumni Littles said their mentor made them feel better about themselves
46% report an annual household income over $75,000
78% vote in elections
76% learned right from wrong from their mentor
50%+ said their mentor kept them from dropping out of high school
Big Brothers Big Sisters is very beneficial because Bigs become good role models to your kids. Anne has been a very good role model to Macy and I couldn’t ask for anything more.Jill, Parent
