How does Big Brothers Big Sisters make a difference in our community?
Compared to all other children their age, boys and girls who are matched with a Big Brother or
Big Sister are 40% less likely to get arrested. Compared to their peers, matched youth are:
- 46% less likely to begin using illegal drugs
- 27% less likely to begin using alcohol
- 52% less likely to skip school
The program really works. These are impressive results when you consider the many risks faced by
kids in our society. That’s why matching caring volunteers to children on our waiting list is so
What makes Bowl For Kids’ Sake important to Big Brothers Big Sisters?
