Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Southern Adirondacks have been helping children in Warren, Washington and northern Saratoga Counties since 1975.
Our Vision is to see all children achieve success in life.
Our Mission is to provide children facing adversity with strong and enduring, professionally supported one-to-one relationships that change their lives for the better, forever.
By partnering with parents/guardians, volunteers and others in the community we hold ourselves accountable for measurable outcomes such as:
· higher aspirations, greater confidence, and better relationships,
· avoidance of risky behaviors, and
· educational success.
Our one-to-one mentoring program help children beat the odds.
By volunteering your time as a mentor you can help put a child on a positive path. You and your Little would meet for one hour a week to share simple things you already like to do – maybe play catch in the park, have a picnic, bake cookies, take a bike ride, bowl or visit the library. Our application and interview process is efficient and thorough, and allows our program specialists to connect you with a Little best suited for you.
By supporting Big Brothers Big Sister you help solidify a local one-to-one mentoring program with a 40-year proven track record of providing youth facing adversity with stable and lasting mentoring relationships to help them achieve their highest potential. With more than 100 years of national experience, research and innovation behind us, our mentoring program is a proven prevention -- helping youth avoid risky behaviors by developing and sustaining positive ones. Your donation helps to offset our annual investment of $1,000 to support each mentoring relationship.
Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Southern Adirondacks currently serve 50 children in our community-based program and 150 children in our site-based programs at participating schools.
