About Big Brothers Big Sisters
The Big Brothers Big Sisters Mission is to provide children facing adversity with strong and enduring, professionally supported one-to-one relationships that change their lives for the better, forever.
What we Do
BBBS creates and supports strong and caring relationships between an adult volunteer and a child. Our unique model of one-to-one mentoring has a direct and lasting effect on the lives of those who need us most, including those living in single-parent homes, growing up in poverty and coping with parental incarceration. Making and supporting these relationships, and performing all the background work involved with them, is possible because of donations from people like you.
In 2012, Central Texas volunteers provided 90,000 hours of mentoring to 1,500 Little Brothers and Sisters! Even more impressively, last year more than 97 percent of Central Texas "Littles" stayed in school, improved their grades and avoided early parenting. The Central Texas agency is ranked in the top 5 percent in the nation for program quality (out of nearly 400 BBBS agencies).
