Big Brothers Big Sisters Ocean County
National research has shown that the positive relationships between youth and their Big Brothers and Big Sisters have direct and measurable impact on the children´s lives. By participating in our youth mentoring programs, Little Brothers and Little Sisters are:
- More confident in their school work performance
- Able to get along better with their families
- 46% less likely to begin using illegal drugs
- 27% less likely to begin using alcohol
- 52% less likely to skip school
Big Brothers Big Sisters is a life changing preventive program that ultimately reduces the need for possible future juvenile justice and school disciplinary intervention when the child is older and/or becomes an adult. There will always be a need for mentoring services as the number of single parents continues to grow within the county however, for those Littles that participate in the program the need for future intervention is greatly reduced.
