Cincinnati CRAVE Cares Partner – Big Brothers Big Sisters

“Changing Perspectives. Changing Lives.”

Throughout the entire month of January, your generous donation will help provide Tri-State children with positive role models – simply “Round It Up!”

It’s National Mentoring Month and we’re excited to be partnering with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Cincinnati (BBBS) as our CRAVE Cares Partner!

For more than 100 years, Big Brothers Big Sisters has operated under the belief that inherent in every child is the ability to succeed and thrive in life. 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”), ages 6 through 18, in communities across the country.

BBBS develops positive relationships that have a direct and lasting effect on the lives of young people.

Their mission is to provide children facing adversity with strong and enduring, professionally supported 1-to-1 relationships that change their lives for the better, forever.

National research has shown that positive relationships between Littles and their Bigs have a direct and measurable impact on children’s lives. By participating in their programs, Little Brothers and Sisters are:

  • More confident in their schoolwork 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.1
