Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Inland Empire
Children need a Champion.
We are the bridge that connects disadvantage children to community members – mentors.
Your Big Brothers Big Sisters provides youth in Riverside and San Bernardino the gift of a mentor. 1 in 3 children grow up in our cities without a mentor. Studies show that youth, like the ones we serve, without a mentor are 10 times more likely to drop out of high school than their high-income peers. And high school dropouts are ineligible for 90 percent of jobs and make up 80 percent of the prison population.
TOGETHER we are the solution for inspire and ignite potential. Every child need a mentor.
We are telling every child hiding in the margins of our communities that we have someone for them that will stand in their corner.
Big Brothers Big Sisters’ mentoring program has proven results reducing juvenile delinquency and gang involvement, offering at-risk children an alternative, positive future.
Our impact on a child has a direct financial benefit and return to the local community. Through a donation every $1 donated, $18 is returned back through their academic success, financial literacy and successful employment.
Donate for a child to meet their mentor
