This is Big.
Since our inception nearly 100 years ago, Jewish Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Boston has helped to connect more than 6,000 local children and teens to adult mentors. We’ve introduced over 1,000 adults who have disabilities to new friends in their communities. We’ve sent over 350 former Little Brothers and Sisters to college and over 1,600 to day and overnight camp on scholarships designated exclusively for JBBBS alums. We’ve witnessed the profound impact of mentoring-friendships: Stronger relationships with parents and peers, improved decision-making, better grades, increased self-confidence, higher life ambitions. There’s nothing little about that.
