Could your little one use a Big?

 

It all starts with the right role models. And Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Capital Region is the place to start a relationship with one. For over 30 years, we’ve been able to recruit, screen, match and support mentoring relationships that have changed the lives of hundreds of thousands of young people across the country — one Little at a time.


You’ll feel the impact as much as your little.

A study for Big Brothers Big Sisters found that kids matched with a Big Brother or Big Sister:

  • are more confident
  • are more likely to steer clear of drugs and alcohol
  • do better in school
  • get along better with their family and friends
  • feel better about themselves
