About Big Brothers Big Sisters Orange County
The Big Brothers Big Sisters mission is to provide children facing adversity with strong and enduring, professionally-supported one-to-one relationships that change their lives for the better, forever. As the nation’s largest donor and volunteer supported mentoring network, Big Brothers Big Sisters makes meaningful, monitored matches between adult volunteers (“Bigs”) and children (“Littles”). Our programs are proven to reduce a child’s risk of dropping out of school, becoming violent, using drugs and alcohol, and falling victim to other negative cycles that threaten our society. In 2012, 100% of Orange County Littles graduated high school on time and 97% went on to college. In addition to financial support, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Orange County needs male volunteers to become Big Brothers as seventy percent of the children waiting for a “Big” are boys, yet only three in every 10 inquiries about volunteering come from men.
