Mission Statement

"To empower at-risk girls to recognize their value and pursue higher goals through a community of women mentors."

Description

The Big Sister League of San Diego, Inc. is a local non-profit agency founded in 1942, which provides housing programs for women with mental illness. The agency started the Big and Little Sister mentor program in 1978, after receiving feedback from their housing residents that a consistent, caring person would have made a difference in their lives when they were younger. The mentor program has been serving at risk girls of San Diego County since this time and as of 2012, became its own autonomous 501(C)3 agency. We are now known as Girls Rising.

I want to make an impact in one or many lives, I want to reach the audience by making them reflect or make them value life. I know I will learn so much a long the way as well.

Not only do the volunteers work very hard to build a good foundation for a positive future, but the organizers do everything they can to create team building events, Big Sister only events (with terrific sponsors), and holiday parties. They have been a huge part of my life for 2 years now and I wouldn't have it any other way! They are a caring and hard working group who strive to really help us make a positive influence on a young girl's life who otherwise might not get the opportunities they deserve. I'm now working with my second little sis and it's an amazing experience with so many happy and fulfilling moments.
