Match Makers 2017

About This Campaign

Did you know that today, one in three young people will reach the age of 19 without having an adult mentor of any kind.

That's 1/3 of our youth with no one helping them stay on a positive, productive life path. Children who are mentored are more likely to be successful in school, to avoid drugs and alcohol and to enter young adulthood with opportunities for their future.

Big Brothers Big Sisters creates those opportunities through caring, one-to-one, mentoring matches. Matches that aren't possible without your financial contributions. Donations received from our supporters help
• Recruit volunteers
• Cover the cost of background checks and, fingerprinting
• Provide ongoing support to families, Bigs and Littles
• Ensure that matches are safe and productive for everyone

Sign up to be a Match Maker today and you can help ensure that we continue to make matches that will change the life of a child for the better, forever.

Campaign to Support Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central New Mexico

For more than 100 years, Big Brothers Big Sisters has operated under the belief that inherent in every child is the ability to succeed and thrive in life. As the nation’s largest donor and volunteer supported mentoring network, Big Brothers Big Sisters makes meaningful, monitored matches between adult volunteers (“Bigs”) and children (“Littles”), ages 6 through 18, in communities across the country. We develop positive relationships that have a direct and lasting effect on the lives of young people. By partnering with parents/guardians, volunteers and others in the community we are accountable for each child in our program achieving:• Higher aspirations, greater confidence, and better relationships• Avoidance of risky behaviors• Educational success.

Our Programs Start Something.  Here's the proof. National research has shown that positive relationships between Littles and their Bigs have a direct and measurable impact on children’s lives. By participating in our programs, Little Brothers and Sisters are: •more confident in their schoolwork performance•able to get along better with their families•46% less likely to begin using illegal drugs•27% less likely to begin using alcohol•52% less likely to skip school.
