Big Brothers Big Sisters
Description:
Big Brothers Big Sisters is a non-profit organization whose mission is to help children reach their potential through professionally supported, one-to-one relationships with mentors that have a measurable impact on youths. The organization currently operates in all 50 United States and in 13 other countries around the world, including Australia, Austria, Bermuda, Bulgaria, Canada, Germany, Ireland, Israel, Netherlands, New Zealand, Poland, Russia, and South Africa.
Expanded Description:
According to the Big Brothers Big Sisters International website, all Big Brothers Big Sisters organizations share one mission, unchanged since the first agency’s founding in 1904 in America: to help at-risk young people achieve their full potential through professionally supported one-to-one mentoring with measurable outcomes. Research published in the 1990s documenting the effectiveness of the model heightened the demand for Big Brothers Big Sisters mentoring outside the United States, and Big Brothers Big Sisters International was created in 1998 to respond to that need.

LANGUAGE NOTE: We recognize waymarking as a global hobby and welcome waymarks from all countries. However, if the waymark is written in a language other than English, an English translation is required. The English translation does not need to be perfect, just clear enough for the Officers and other viewers to understand what the waymark is about. And, as always, please cite your sources. Thank you!
