big-sister-little-sister-outside-smilingJewish Big Brothers Big Sisters programs for children and adults are structured around the importance of a one-to-one match between a mentor and a mentee.

Research has shown that a strong, sustainable relationship with a mentor – a sound role model, a trusted adviser, a committed friend – can have a long-lasting impact on self-esteem, life ambition, success in school, work and relationships. And it’s not just mentees who report a positive impact from their involvement in our programs.

Mentors, too, report their own lives changed for the better, forever, for having encountered their mentees.
