“I AM the Big Sister Mentoring Program” is a simple idea; sometimes you just need a friend…a sister. Someone that has made it through what they consider the most “scary” time in their entire life.
What do we achieve?
“I AM the Big Sister Mentoring Program” help young ladies achieve success in school, avoid risky behaviors, improve their self-confidence, and helps them learn how to build healthy relationships.
We hold ourselves accountable to our supporters by regularly measuring our impact.
How we achieve it?
The “Big Sister’s” have the opportunity to share their experiences as positive role models. And the “Little Sister’s” have the chance to learn that they are not alone in the issues they face and that understanding, kindness and compassion can be the foundation for better relationships with others.
In doing so, all the girls develop confidence, leadership skills and compassion.
