Research Proves Our Mentoring Programs Work!
Research has shown that positive relationships between youth and their Big Brothers and Big Sisters mentors have a direct and measurable impact on children’s lives.
Little Brothers and Sisters in the Washington region after a match of a year or longer are shown to be:
- 85% less likely to have contact with Juvenile Courts
- 70% less likely than their peers to initiate drug usage
- 64% more likely to achieve higher grades
Big Brothers Big Sisters has a stellar record in helping children on a daily basis make healthy choices to stay in school, stay out of trouble and on track toward healthy and productive futures.
A Big Brother or Sister is someone who has found ways to succeed in life and cares enough to pass on these lessons.
