Welcome Big Brothers Big Sisters of Livingston County
Big Brothers Big Sisters of Livingston County has been providing children with mentors since 1980. Our service is based on a One-To-One relationship between a volunteer and a child in need of a friend.
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 482 children through mentoring; changing their lives for the better - forever.
