The results of a successful mentoring relationship are both positive and measurable.
• Mentored Littles show an increase in academic behavior, attitudes and performance. These improvements are the direct result of a positive mentoring relationship and although there is no guarantee, Littles that succeed in school are more likely to succeed in adulthood.
• A Big provides another source of encouragement and consistency in a child’s life. When matched through Big Brothers Big Sisters, the child is given their own personal cheerleader. A Big provides the positive reinforcement and encouragement that a child with low self esteem needs in order to overcome negative thoughts and behaviors.
• Mentored at risk youth have better relationships with their parents and peers and feel more confident in schoolwork and the day to day decisions they make regarding drug and alcohol use.
• Mentored youth overall show an improvement in academic behavior, attitudes and performance.
