Mission Statement

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Siouxland enhances the social, emotional and character growth of youth through an arranged relationship with a screened and trained role model.

Description

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Siouxland is an organization that matches up children with positive adult role models. Most of the children in our program come from single-parent families and are lacking an extra support person in their lives. The children we serve range in age from 6-16. Volunteers can be as young as 16 or 17 (in our Junior Big program)...but most of our volunteers are 18 and up...all the way up to senior citizen age. It's found that when a child is matched with a mentor, they do better in school, they're less likely to use drugs and alcohol and their relationships with their family and friends are improved.
