Impact and Programs

Accomplishments See Previous Year's Goals statement. Big Brothers Big Sisters programs are designed to help children achieve lifelong success, measured through three primary indicators: 1) Educational successes: including improved school engagement, academic achievement, college readiness, and increased likelihood of high school and college graduation for youth. 2) Attitudes towards risky behaviors, including a reduction of risky behavior and decreased likelihood of delinquency, among other negative outcomes, and 3) Social-emotional competency, including youth social acceptance, parental trust, and special adult relationships. Improvements in social-emotional competencies correlate to a reduction of risky behavior and violence, improved academic achievement, and a higher likelihood of high school and college graduation. In 2018, BBBS expects to serve at least 3,400 youth through one-to-one and group mentoring, Education & Enrichment services, and its Free Arts program.
