This year, thanks to our generous supporters, we are providing long-term mentoring services to 200,000 children, 200,000 volunteers and 200,000 families nationwide. Big Brothers Big Sisters continues as the gold standard youth mentoring services leader. We continue to improve the length and quality of our mentoring matches.

However, there is still much to accomplish. We have more than 30,000 children waiting to be matched with a Big Brothers Big Sisters mentor. It costs approximately $100 to maintain a match between a Big and a Little for one month, or $1200 for one year. Help us end the wait by making a gift today.

As the nation’s largest non-profit one-to-one youth mentoring organization, it is our mission to provide children facing adversity with strong and enduring professionally supported one-to-one relationships that change their lives for the better--forever. Please consider Big Brothers Big Sisters of America in your charitable giving this season so that we are able to serve those children waiting for a mentor. Your gift will help us provide positive life changing experiences to these deserving children.
