Make A Match Campaign
With the guidance and friendship of caring mentors, children served by Big Brothers Big Sisters of Santa Cruz County are not limited by their circumstances. Mentors help provide children facing adversity the foundation and support to do better in school and make better life choices.
Of the local children with a Big Brother or Big Sister:
- 82% experienced improvement in social well-being;
- 78% experienced improvement in academic performance;
- 74% experienced improvement in family relationships.
