Give the Gift of Mentoring

Give the gift of mentoring this holiday season.

Did you know that every child faces adversity in their life?  The choices these children make sets the stage for how they will develop and the type of adult they will be.

The children in the Big Brothers Big Sisters program all face adversity in their lives, most face many different types of adversities, and they could all benefit from the positive influece of a Big Brother or Big Sister.  By having a Big Brother or Big Sister the children we serve are more likely to go to college, set higher goals, and avoid drugs and alcohol.

Give the gift of mentoring and help a child reach his or her potential.  Make a donation today!
