Big Sister

I just got the call today that I’ll be getting a little sis soon.  I’ve always wanted to get involved with Big Brothers Big Sisters and I’m so excited to become a mentor!  
It’s actually a pretty lengthy process, the orientation is first… then you get a call back for an interview… they check your references… and next is the official meeting.
Right now there is a big need for Latino mentors in our community.

Take a look at these stats from BBBS of San Diego County.

The Results

Researchers found that after 18 months of spending time with their Bigs, the Little Brothers and Little Sisters were:
  • 46% less likely to begin using illegal drugs
  • 27% less likely to begin using alcohol
  • 52% less likely to skip school
  • 37% less likely to skip a class
  • minority boys and girls were 70% less likely than their peers to initiate drug use
  • more confident of their performance in schoolwork
  • one-third less likely to hit someone
  • getting along better with their families

Amazing!
