|Organization||Big Brothers Big Sisters of Vigo County|
|Need||Our agency has been serving the Wabash Valley\'s youth for over forty years! Our service is based on volunteers. We have proven success in creating and nurturing positive relationships that benefit everyone involved. This includes the volunteer, child, family, and the community.
Volunteers come from all social, financial and ethnic backgrounds. They may be college students, married couples, retirees or working professionals. Volunteers are carefully screened and trained to ensure the safety of every child.
For more than 100 years, Big Brothers Big Sisters has operated under the belief that inherent in every child is the ability to succeed and thrive in life. As the nation’s largest donor and volunteer supported mentoring network, Big Brothers Big Sisters makes meaningful, monitored matches between adult volunteers (“Bigs”) and children (“Littles”), ages 6 through 18, in communities across the country. We develop positive relationships that have a direct and lasting effect on the lives of young people.
The vision of Big Brothers Big Sisters is that 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.
