About Our Organization

Big Brothers Big Sisters is working hard to change lives for youth in Jackson through mentoring. With your support of Bowl For Kids Sake, you are joining us in helping to create brighter futures for the youth of Jackson. Providing youth with a mentor has many proven and worthy benefits for both the participating youth and the community as a whole. Mentors influence the lives of children and the lives of their families in ways that promote the child’s growth, increase the child’s capacity and strengthen the child’s family and community ties. Researchers found that the involvement of a Big Brothers Big Sisters mentor in a young person's life for a year reduced first-time drug use by 46 percent, school absenteeism by 52 percent and violent behavior by a third. Young people with mentors were more likely to perform well in school and relate better to family and friends and were less likely to start using alcohol. Together, we can make a difference for the kids in Jackson.
