Big Brothers Big Sisters of Northeast Florida

http://www.bbbsnefl.org

In a world of causes, we make a difference by creating professionally supported, one-to-one matches for kids who want to realize their full potential. Last fiscal year ending June 30, 2020, we provided mentors and support for 777 children through our school and community-based programs. The impact our programs have on our youth was significant with 97% receiving no behavior referrals or suspensions, 98% maintaining or improving their school attendance and 98% being promoted to the next grade level. Our goal is for the youth we serve to graduate from high school prepared for the workplace, post-secondary opportunities and a successful life. Each time Big Brothers Big Sisters of Northeast Florida pairs a child with a role model, we start something incredible: a one-to-one friendship built on power and promise that can blossom into a future of unlimited potential. What you do today, changes a child’s life tomorrow.
