Tucson Big Brothers, Big Sisters

Our Community Partner this month is Big Brothers Big Sisters of Tucson

The Big Brothers Big Sisters vision is that all children achieve success in life. To that end, they provide children facing adversity with strong and enduring, professionally lives for the better, forever.

Big Brothers Big Susters partners with parents and guardians, volunteers and others in the community providing a means for each child in the program to achieve higher aspirations, have greater confidence and better relationships, and avoid  risky behaviors while working for educational success.

National research has shown that positive relationships between Littles and their Bigs have direct and measurable impacts on children’s lives. By participating in our programs, Little Brothers and Sisters are more confident in their schoolwork performance and able to get along better with their families. They are also:

    46% less likely to begin using illegal drugs
    27% less likely to begin using alcohol
    52% less likely to skip school
