Big Brothers Big Sisters needs YOU.
Big Brothers Big Sisters receives 75% of our funding from private donations. Support from individuals like you is vital to provide mentors for Midland's youth.
And we know they need them. It isn’t easy being a kid these days. In these complex and confusing times, children need a caring adult to be a mentor and a friend — someone they can talk to, have fun with, and learn from.
Currently, there are more than 90 children on our ready-to-be matched list, most of these children are boys. As the list grows, the need for donations grows stronger. There are many ways to give, and your donation will be used to improve children's lives in the community. With your help, BBBS can find a mentor for every child on our ready-to-be-matched list.
Research shows that our mentoring works. Kids with a Big Brother or Big Sister show real differences in their personal and academic lives. They are:
- More confident in their schoolwork performance
- Able to get along better with their families
- 52% less likely to skip school. 1
Your donation will be used to:
- Help recruit new Big Brother and Big Sister volunteers
- Cover the costs of background checks and insurance, while ensuring trained professionals match children to caring and responsible Bigs
- Offer one-on-one, ongoing supervision and support for every match
- Provide cultural and social activities to enrich the opportunities for children
