Consider what young people are facing today — a global pandemic, racial unrest, distance learning, social isolation, fear and uncertainty. Minnesota students struggle with one of the highest opportunity gaps — and the lowest ratios of students to guidance counselors — in the nation. That translates to tens of thousands of youth who need mentors in their lives. Kids need support now more than ever!
Mentored youth excel in many areas of their lives. It’s the student who makes measurable gains in academic performance. It’s the child who transforms from withdrawn to confident. It’s the young adult who now has hope and a plan for their future.
Big Brothers Big Sisters Twin Cities seeks to amplify the potential that lives within all children to realize their biggest possible future.
