BSLS is a premier mentoring organization for young women. As a volunteer and donor, I have been pleased with the quality of programming and community service endeavors. If you are looking for an organization to support, look no further. My wife and I will continue to support BSLS with time and monetary donations.

I serve as the founder and CEO of Big Sister Little Sister Mentoring Program. I am beyond honored to be an essential element/part of this organization. It's a blessing that God chose me to be a leader for BSLS. I have watched this organization literally grow from 0 to 100 before my eyes and it is still continuing to expand in various aspects. BSLS have helped shape and form me into the woman I am today with the challenges that come from starting, maintaining and growing a company as well as the impactful programs/projects. I have gained so many sisters and mentees that God has used me to contribute to in various aspects to excel them. It is our goal and responsibility to ensure we implement programs and projects to support our mission: “To inspire all women to remain empowered, excel academically, aspire to be self-sufficient while being and having a mentor that will hold you accountable to live life with a purpose.” I am so excited to see where God uses us to take this organization and I am positive it will only continue to soar. We have an amazing team, incredible members and wonderful supporters!

Greetings and Humble Salutations, I am Kenderia Moore. I currently serve as the 2018-2019 Miss BSLS. For me, BSLS is one of the best things that has ever happened to me since stepping onto FAMU's campus. Being a first-generation student I didn't have anyone to help my transition from high school to college. Being paired with a big sister not only gave me a mentor but a friendship worth much more than advice. This past spring semester BSLS enabled me to gain 48 new sisters, young ladies who all share a passion for BSLS like I do. Not only did this help me gain new sisters but help me network and become a better version of myself. I learned how to take my weaknesses and turn them into strengths. From volunteering on and off campus to bonding with my sisters, I can truly say that BSLS has already left an indelible impression on my life with only being in the program for almost a year. BSLS has helped me grow in such a way that even my family noticed, it has also helped me find who I am and I am not the same person I was a year ago. And for that I thank BSLS so much.

I have never experienced such a powerful group of women who can come together as one and uplift each other ! I was only taking photos of the event, but it made me want to join, but I gained not one sister but an infinite amount of sisters and love ! I’m so glad I was able to be apart of something so great ! Sisters helping other sisters !

BSLS has helped to solidify unshakable bonds through sisterhood and uplifting the community. I have been a member for almost 10 years and had the pleasure of being the mentor of several young women who have gone on to be leaders in their fields after graduating with honors. BSLS definitely understands the importance of mentoring and how it can change the trajectory of your life. We have been able to collect food and clothes for the homeless, raise money to fund projects for underserved students, educate campuses about cancer, and so much more. This organization is vibrant, fun, youthful, and making a dynamic impact one sister at a time!

Big Sister Little Sister Mentoring Program is an organization that's definitely needed. I pray that they open in more states other than just Texas and Florida. This organization is a great opportunity for girls who are lost, misguided, or who just simply needs a friend. Every young girl should be able to experience a big sister who will mentor her and lead her to greatness.

I have had the pleasure of working with The Big Sister Little Sister Mentoring Program on more than one occasion. I am really impressed at how organized and proficient this organization is. One event in particular touched my heart. Big Sister Little Sister sponsored an Easter Egg Hunt in a community that normally gets overlooked. To see the hundreds of smiles from the children touched my heart. The job of supporting kids and mentoring younger generations is no easy job and Big Sister Little Sister plays a vital role in our community and on college campuses on multiple locations. I love this organization.

This organization gave me a means to enhance the development of my leadership and provide mentorship to young women. Since my undergrad years, I've seen the organization grow to make more impactful strides in the lives of young women. It's refreshing to see a group so committed to their development & helping these future leaders hone in on their skills and passions.

I have been a part of the Famu Chapter of Big Sister Little Sister Mentoring program for the last two years. I can whole-heartedly say this mentoring program has helped shaped me into the community leader I am today. Being built on sisterhood, empowerment and purpose, isn't just a saying for us, it is a must. I have learned to appreciate all things in life, and have gained even more of an insight for helping others. I love this organization, because we have a passion for giving back and providing service for others. I appreciate our dedication to going out into the communities and mentoring young women, but never singling out anyone. This organization is a mentoring program that needs to be instilled in every school or university hands down. Thank you for changing my life positively BSLS.

I have seen multiple occasions where BSLS has helped In the community. But I will share one recent event. This pass Easter BSLS hosted a Easter egg hunt in a poverty stricken community that does not have these kinds of events. I attended and witness firsthand the compassion they had to make sure the children had a memorable day. The planning that went into this successfully event was probably numerous. But the face of the children serviced was priceless. Just to know people still care about the less fortunate is very inspiring.
