Big Brothers Big Sisters has been the leader in youth mentoring services for more than a century. As America's most successful mentoring program, we know that one-to-one relationships with caring adults can make all the difference in a child's life.
Children matched with a Big Brother or Big Sister were:
46% less likely to begin using illegal drugs
52% less likely to skip school
More confident in their performance at school
More likely to get along better with their families and peers
In Wake, Durham, and Orange Counties, there are approximately 32,000 at-risk youth. Our vision is to serve over 2,000 at-risk children by 2010 in these counties. You can help us with this goal!
Become a Big and make a difference in the life of a child!
