BBBS by the numbers

Standard

You probably know by now that Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Greater Twin Cities makes meaningful, monitored matches between children (Littles) and adult volunteer mentors (Bigs). These positive relationships have a direct and lasting impact on the lives of young people.

As any volunteer Big Brother or Big Sister will tell you, our Littles are some fantastic kids. Many of them are facing adversity of some kind, and the support of a caring role model and mentor will do a lot to help them overcome obstacles and achieve their highest potential.

Here are a few statistics from the past year that represent the youth we serve.

These facts represent significant challenges for our Littles. But we know that mentoring makes a significant, positive impact on children, and we make a big effort to measure the results of our programs. And the outcomes are impressive.
