Big Brothers Big Sisters, Inc. is a huge asset to our community as they pair often directionless youth with an adult mentor who can help them identify life goals and take the first steps to reach those goals.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the lives of students in our schools as they are motivated to stay in school.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

make sure that all employees followed up wtih every request/match/phone call/ email, and find a way to reduce turn-over.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

their vision for positive change.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Area Managers, Match Coordinators, and one Supervisor.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

pay adults to mentor young people, and have them go through a hiring process so that only the best ones were allowed to have time with the kids.

Ways to make it better...

I had personally been matched with a Little sooner.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

the lack of adults volunteering to participate in the program.

One thing I'd also say is that...

this organization has the potential to change so many young lives, and therefore the future!
