About This Organization

Each time Big Brothers Big Sisters pairs a child with a role model, we start something incredible: a one-to-one relationship, built upon trust and friendship, that can blossom into a future of unhalted, unlimited potential. And thanks to the first-ever nationwide impact study of a mentoring organization, we have the facts to prove it. The Study and Results In a study completed by Public/Private Ventures, a national research organization headquartered in Philadelphia, PA, researchers found that after 18 months of spending time with their Bigs, the Little Brothers and Little Sisters, compared to those children not in our program, were representative of the following: 46% less likely to begin using illegal drugs 27% less likely to begin using alcohol 52% less likely to skip school 37% less likely to skip a class 33% less likely to hit someone Alongside the statistics, the study also found that the Littles were more confident in their performance at school, and were getting along better with their families. The matches observed in the study shared simple, everyday activities together, such as going out to eat, going to the movies, playing sports or simply hanging out and sharing meaningful conversation. What mattered most to the children, however, was not just the activities: it was the fact that they had a caring adult in their lives who was there for them. "When Little Brothers and Little Sisters feel good about themselves," said Karen J. Mathis, Big Brothers Big Sisters of America President and CEO, "they can positively impact their friends and families, their schools, and their communities. And as this important study has shown, these young people believe in themselves because a Big Brother or Big Sister believed in them.” Because they had someone to confide in and look up to, the children were doing better in school and at home, and were avoiding violence and substance abuse at a time in their lives when the smallest choice could change the course of their entire future.
