YOU can make a difference in the life of an at-risk child, and in our community.
Not everyone can commit to being a Big Brother or Big Sister, but everyone can make a difference. When you donate to Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Central Blue Ridge, you are supporting long-term mentoring relationships that will reap life-changing results - and studies show our program has a sustained impact on children, their families and our community. Our mentors are committed to investing consistent, quality time with their Littles for at least a year, and the majority continue their visits for many years!
When we match a child with an adult mentor, our professional staff uses a rigorous process to consider personality, interests, and many other factors to provide the pairing with the best possible chance for an enduring and rewarding relationship. Big Brothers Big Sisters proactively gives ongoing support and supervision to the Big, the Little and to the Little's family. We offer training and advice to help ensure that the match is working for everyone involved. It is this professional attention to the match that leads to our documented positive youth outcomes.
