The mission of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Florida is to provide children facing adversity with strong and enduring, professionally supported one-to-one relationships that change their lives for the better, forever.
BBBSCFL has one core mission: provide children facing adversity with strong and enduring, professionally supported one-to-one relationships that change their lives for the better, forever. Independent studies have clearly shown that mentoring is an effective preventative service that improves childrenâ s lives by increasing self-confidence, decision-making skills, school attendance, and academic success. Mentoring is also proven to decrease levels of truancy, substance abuse, teen pregnancy, and school drop-out rates. By partnering with local corporations, businesses, and schools, BBBSCFL is able to recruit, screen, and train adult volunteers to serve as mentors to children throughout Central Florida. BBBSCFL runs two distinct mentoring programs: 1) site-based mentoring, 2) community-based mentoring.
