RESEARCH ON BIG BROTHERS BIG SISTERS

IMPACT ON SELF-CONFIDENCE

Research shows that our one-to-one mentoring programs have real outcomes for children. 

One-on-one attention from a caring adult role model is a key part of developing self-confidence, and research shows that Bigs help Littles feel more confident in several areas.

IMPACT ON EDUCATION

IMPACT ON JUVENILE JUSTICE

Evidence shows that being matched through Big Brothers Big Sisters can make a big difference in how a child performs in school and how he or she feels about school in general.

Many children get swept up into what their peers are doing, but research shows that having another caring adult on their side helps Littles make good decisions and avoid risky behaviors.
