Big Brothers Big Sisters Lone Star
Our mission at Big Brothers Big Sisters is to build and support one-to-one relationships to ignite the biggest possible futures for youth. We have been serving the Greater Dallas community for 93 years and invite you to learn how you can become a “Big” and positively impact a child’s life at https://www.bbbstx.org/dallas/.
Join my team to help raise funds for Big Brothers Big Sisters Lone Star's Military Mentoring initiative. The goal of Military Mentoring is to provide children of military families with evidence-based, professionally-supported one-to-one mentoring services.
These services allow the children to work through or avoid the challenges common to military children including the stress associated with parental re-integration or loss that can impact the child in many areas, limiting academic success; social/emotional interactions; and behavioral progress. BBBS provides positive, lasting impact to the military community through the nations' oldest and most respected, evidence-based one-to-one mentoring program. Mentors or 'Bigs' are asked to meet with their 'Littles' 2 to 4 times per month, sharing activities both enjoy at school or in the community. Most important, matched pairs share formative conversation in which the children share their concerns and mentors provide the advice and inspiration to help them with their needs and pursue success.
In the Military Mentoring Program children of military personnel are matched with a volunteer mentor that has an understanding of the lifestyle of our armed service families, whether that means they are a veteran themselves or have similar experiences.
