We at Big Sisters are so grateful for our supporters and volunteers who together helped us deliver 20,000+ mentoring hours to over 600 youth in our community! The impacts of these efforts will be felt today and well into the future.
As many of you know, March 8th is International Women’s Day and the theme this year is #BreakTheBias, encouraging all to think how they can challenge gender biases in their workplaces and communities to create a more equitable world.
Big Sisters knows that mentorship is key to fulfilling this challenge. Mentored youth have been shown to be more likely to hold senior leadership positions, give back their communities and earn higher wages over a lifetime.
We are committed to this mission and ensuring that all the female, female-identifying and non-binary youth we support reach their full potential.
