As the end of 2021 approaches and we reflect on this past year, we at Big Brothers Big Sisters of Delaware are proud of our work to engage and inspire youth in our community. Did you know that Big Brothers Big Sisters provides mentoring programs in schools, workplaces, and our community?
Established in 1964 as an alternative to the juvenile justice system to reach the most marginalized youth, hundreds of Littles, their families, and Bigs (adult mentors) are part of our program each year.
According to our most recent Youth Outcomes Survey (YOS),
➢ 90% of Littles said their Big makes them feel better about themselves
➢ 65% of Littles agreed their Big helped them reach a higher level of education than they thought was possible
➢ 80% of Littles said they feel their Bigs help them a lot
➢ 77% of Littles said they are doing better in school because of their Big
Our mentoring model inspires youth equity and empowerment and engages intentionally with mentors, mentees, and their families to help break the cycle of poverty, contribute to a healthier society, and help shape the leaders of tomorrow.
Your help makes it possible for us to transform lives. Your gift to Big Brothers Big Sisters of Delaware this year will ensure we can continue to impact young people in the year ahead.
