Alongside each child and mentor is the donor who made the friendship possible. Your gift, no matter how “big” or “little,” enables one-to-one mentoring to be a free, safe, and effective resource for families and children who want and need a positive, loving adult to be carefully placed into their child’s life. Young people who have a mentor are much more likely to be leaders, avoid incarceration, go on to college, and volunteer.
Even more, when you fund a Big for a Little, you propel a life-changing ripple effect for the surrounding family members and the generations that follow.

Because of You
“I’m a petroleum engineer for an oil and gas company right here in Houston, just like my Bigs told me I could be. The reality is I do not know where I would be without Barbara and Greg. And I don’t know where I would be without Big Brothers Big Sisters.”
