Do you donate to the Non-Profit of the Month? This November, that lucky non-profit will be Big Brothers Big Sisters (BBBS) Lone Star!
BBBS Lone Star represents the Texas chapters of Big Brothers Big Sisters, the nation’s largest volunteer supported mentoring network. The non-profits work by matching adult volunteers (“Bigs”) with children (“Littles”) aged 6 to 18, based on the children’s unique needs. It then provides ongoing support and supervision to the Bigs and Littles, as well as the Littles’ families.
The model aims to provide children with strong and enduring relationships with adult role models. This, in turn, helps children develop greater confidence, set higher aspirations, avoid risky behaviors, and achieve educational success.
