Big Brothers Big Sisters launches Start Something, a national initiative inviting all adults – not just volunteers -- to support quality mentoring to help children who face adversity beat the odds.
The nation’s leader in quality one-to-one youth mentoring services, Big Brothers Big Sisters holds itself accountable for and is able to measure specific youth outcomes -- educational achievement, avoidance of risky behaviors (especially juvenile delinquency), higher self-esteem, confidence and ability to relate to others. Start Something challenges Americans to contact Big Brothers Big Sisters of Southwestern New Mexico to get involved by donating, sharing mentoring success stories or volunteering. Increased funding will allow Big Brothers Big Sisters to carefully make more mentoring matches and provide ongoing assistance for mentors, mentees and families to help sustain long successful relationships unique to its programs.
“We know the serious risks – high dropout rates, juvenile crime, teen pregnancy – facing today’s youth and we know all too well what happens when we do nothing. Start Something empowers Americans to become a part of a proven solution,” said Karen J. Mathis, Big Brothers Big Sisters of America president and CEO. “We are proud of all who take the initiative to Start Something. What better time than now, National Mentoring Month, to start a child on the road to success? When our kids improve in and out of school, the entire nation succeeds.
