About the Big Brothers Big Sisters Charity

Research has shown that positive relationships between youth and their Big Brothers and Big Sisters mentors have a direct and measurable impact on children’s lives.

After as little as one year of mentoring, Little Brothers and Sisters in the DC region are shown to be:

  • 85% less likely to have contact with juvenile courts
  • 70% less likely than their peers to initiate drug usage
  • 64% more likely to achieve higher grades
