Currently I am an intern at Big Brother Big Sisters and I have learned a lot about the importance of provding mentors to children who are in need of a postive long-lasting relationship in their lives. Research has proven that BBBS is able to show and prove the postive impact that these relationships have on the children involved. For example: Children get along better with their familes, they have improved classroom preformance, they are 46% less likely to begin using illegal drugs, 27% less likely to begin using alcohol, and 52% less likely to skip school. So BBBS works! I absolutly love being involved with the agency and I will truely be sad when my internship is over and I have to move on from the agency. So donate or register to run/walk today! Any donation you can provide will be greatly appreciated because big or small, anything that can help improve a child's life is worth giving :)
