The Big Recovery

The Big Recovery

The past year was tough on many kids. Right now, the 1-to-1 support of a mentor can help them move forward. Big Brothers Big Sisters is proud to launch The Big Recovery to help youth bounce back from the pandemic.

Our goal is to recruit over 204 new mentors by the end of the year. As kids enjoy their summer and head back to school this fall, it will take the goodness of our whole community to help them get back on track for success in the classroom and in life.

Distanced learning brought to light the growing number of inequalities youth face each day. The Big Recovery is an opportunity for all youth to achieve their fullest potential in the classroom. The transformational impact of mentoring will help youth now and throughout their lifetime.

Even before the pandemic, one of the most important ways to boost student achievement and learning is to focus on developmental relationships. These relationships allow kids to discover who they are, cultivate the abilities they need to shape their own lives, and learn how to engage with and contribute to the world around them.

Your support is urgent.
