They promote positive values like courage, integrity, and responsibility.
They act as an advocate and source of support.

Mentoring has a BIG impact. Every dollar spent on Big Brothers Big Sisters mentoring generates a $18 return on investment through better school, employment, health and civic engagement outcomes for kids.

“[My Big Sister] Avery has helped me through a lot of hard times. My mom passed away. She was there for me. When we first met, I was sad, I was lonely, and she helped me through that… If it wasn’t for Avery I wouldn’t be here today.
– Alana
