“Big B.R.O. Mentoring Program” understands the unique bond between “Brother’s”, especially a “Little Brother” and a “Big Brother”. Whether related by blood or not, teen males look up to older teens and young adult males. In the “Big B.R.O. Mentoring Program” college men are the “Big Brothers” to high school males and high school boys are the “Big Brothers” to middle school boys.
The “Big Brothers” provide peer support and a positive influence by spending time exhibiting positive characteristics to be emulated by their younger counterparts. Seeing older peers raising aspirations for the future and developing a sense of personal responsibility and integrity sets a new normal in the lives of the “Little Brothers”

How we do what we do?
Our unique brand of peer one-to-one mentoring, in which a middle school or high school young lady is carefully matched with a peer mentor in a relationship supported by professional I Am My Brother staff members, changes the lives of both the “Little Brother” and “Big Brother” forever.
We hold ourselves accountable to our supporters by regularly measuring our impact.

more likely to volunteer regularly
