  • Who was your role model?
  • Think back...
  • Was it a parent? Maybe a teacher, coach or neighbor? Not everyone had a Big Brother or Sister, but you probably had a special role model in your life… someone who made you reach for a goal you thought was unobtainable. Now is your chance to thank your mentor and make your own impact on a child’s life. It costs Big Brothers Big Sisters about $1,200 to recruit and train a caring mentor, interview a child and their family and provide ongoing professional match support to a Little and their Big for one year. Your financial support at any level will help provide a mentor to a child that needs guidance and encouragement.
