THE STORY:

Mission:

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Metropolitan Detroit's mission is to provide children facing adversity with safe, strong and enduring, professionally supported one-to-one relationships that change their lives for the better, forever.

History:

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Metropolitan Detroit (BBBSMD) was formed in 1974 with the merger of five local Big Brother Big Sister organizations from throughout metro Detroit, with a focus on Wayne, Oakland and Macomb counties.  We are the largest one-to-one evidence-based mentoring organization in Southeast Michigan serving nearly 1,000 youth annually with site- and community-based mentoring program.  All of our programming is rooted in evidence-based practices, further differentiating BBBSMD from other mentoring programs. Our mentoring model is certified by multiple federal government departments as an “Effective” evidence-based model in realizing positive outcomes for youth.


Story: 

One can underestimate the “power of one,” the effect which one person can have on the life of another.  As part of the Give Detroit Challenge, we are raising funds specifically for our annual gala which celebrates our community partners and individuals who are dedicated to supporting our youth. Funds raised at “The Big Event: Impact Awards Gala” support our successful mentoring programs and initiatives serving youth throughout Metropolitan Detroit. Did you know that Big Brothers Big Sisters improves the odds of children succeeding in school, behaving nonviolently, avoiding drugs and alcohol, and getting along better with their family and peers? That’s right! Adults who participated in our program as children report that having a Big Brother or Big Sister played an key role in who they are today by positively influencing their self confidence, providing stability, changing their perspective on life and pushing them to higher goals
