Benefits of the Mentoring Programs offered by Big Brothers Big Sisters

Mentoring programs guarantee young people that there is someone who genuinely cares about them and is there for them whenever they need. By assisting in day-to-day challenges, mentors make young people feel like they really matter and like they are not alone. Research has proven that mentoring programs that provide quality relationships have a powerful and positive effect on young people. Their personal, academic, and professional lives benefit greatly from having a role model and a shoulder to lean on when times get tough. Mentoring programs help with personal growth and development of both the mentor and the mentored.

Young people involved in mentoring programs are more likely to:

  • Enroll in college
  • Volunteer regularly
  • Become a mentor themselves
  • Hold leadership positions in their careers
  • Live a positive and fulfilling life
Adults involved in a mentoring program are likely to:
  • Have a sense of pride in being a mentor
  • Make a life-long friendship
  • Learn new things about the younger generation
  • Feel a sense of fulfillment after positively effecting others' lives
