The reunion effort is an extension of Start Something®, a national initiative Big Brothers Big Sisters unveiled two years ago in partnership with the Ad Council. The effort invites all adults – not just volunteers -- to support quality mentoring to change the odds for children facing adversity.
Big Brothers Big Sisters carefully matches children of single, low-income or incarcerated parents or sons and daughters of military personnel in long-term, professionally supported one-to-one mentoring relationships. Independent studies find Littles are more likely than their peers to show improvement in school, their behavior and their self-esteem and aspirations.
People who register via BigBrothersBigSisters.org to join the alumni network will have opportunities to be recognized in marketing efforts and special VIP events with celebrity supporters and ambassadors. Throughout the year, Big Brothers Big Sisters will invite corporate partners to offer alumni special offers and discounts. National alumni network members will also be able to reconnect personally with their former Bigs, Littles, staff or board members and friends, and enjoy membership in existing or soon-to-be formed local auxiliary or booster clubs to support recruitment and fundraising efforts.LIKE US on Facebook to stay up to date with what is going on!
