We know mentoring changes lives for the better. Studies have shown that kids that have been mentored for 12 months or more felt more confident about doing their schoolwork, skipped fewer school days, had higher grades, and were less likely to start using drugs or alcohol. Start volunteering at Big Brothers Big Sisters today and help these statistics grow!

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Iowa offers a variety of mentoring programs suited to meet an assortment of schedules.

We hope you will share your mentoring experience with others!
