High 5 For Littles


Big Brothers Big Sisters of Livingston County has been providing children with mentors since 1980. Our service is based on a One-to-One friendship between a volunteer and a child.  Volunteers serve as friends, mentors, and role models, helping children (who are primarily from single-parent homes) gain greater self-confidence. “Bigs” encourage “Littles” to realize their potential and see themselves as having happy and successful futures.

The Search Institute, a national research firm, conducted a study examining the effect of Big Brothers Big Sisters mentoring on youth and found that, compared to their peers, Little Brothers and Little Sisters who met with their Bigs regularly were:

  • 46% less likely to start using drugs 27% less likely to start drinking 52% less likely to skip a day of school
  • 37% less likely to skip a class
  • 1/3 less likely to hit someone
  • More trusting of their parents/ guardians
  • Less likely to lie
  • Felt more supported and less criticized by their peers and friends

Last year we were able to impact 235 children through mentoring; changing their lives for the better - forever.  The menu on the left side of this page will direct you to more information about us, what we do, and how we do it.
