Campaign to Support Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central California
Big Brothers Big Sisters is the largest, well-known, most researched and measured youth mentoring program in the United States. The heart of our program is a thoroughly screened adult volunteer mentor, known as a “Big”, matched with a child (“Little”) in a relationship that is carefully monitored and supported by our staff.
Here in Central California, our local, independent 501(c)3 non-profit organization has helped more than 10,000 youth since its inception in 1968. These children can benefit from extra attention and receive exposure to more life options than may be available in their own surroundings.
We partner with parents/guardians, volunteers and others in the community and hold ourselves accountable for each child in our program achieving:
- Higher aspirations, greater confidence, and better relationships
- Avoidance of risky behavior
- Educational success
Our local donor and volunteer supported agency formed in Fresno in 1968 and began mentoring services in 1969. Since that time, we have served over 10,000 children and their families. In 1997 satellite offices opened in Hanford and Madera to cover an expanded service area of Kings and Madera counties. Expanding yet again, in late 2007 we merged with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Tulare County and changed the name to Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central California to reflect our new region. Today, we serve four counties in the Central Valley and serve over 1,000 children each year through our different programs.
Our program has been acknowledged and honored by the Juvenile Justice Commission, Fresno Police Department, Fresno County Probation Department, California Youth Authority, City of Fresno, The United Way of Fresno County, and the Governor’s Office. We received a 2005 Quality Award and a 2007 and 2008 Family Strengthening awards from Big Brothers Big Sisters of America and the Annie E. Casey Foundation.
In 2015, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central California was one of 16 agencies to receive the National Gold Standard Award for their outstanding statistics and reaching all of their yearly goals.
