Together, we ignite potential

With our volunteer Big Brothers and Big Sisters, we’ve been transforming West Michigan Lakeshore children’s lives through professionally supported, mentoring relationships for over 50 years.

Mentoring Works

Mentoring works. We see it every day in the stories from our Bigs and Littles and in our research studies. And you can experience it firsthand. When you mentor, you change the life of a child and make a lasting, positive impact on your community.

Researchers found that after 18 months of spending time with their Bigs, the Little Brothers and Little Sisters, compared to those children not in our program, were:

46% less likely to begin using illegal drugs

52% less likely to skip school

33% less likely to hit someone
