30 Causes, Week 15: Big Brothers Big Sisters of Metro Atlanta


We’re now halfway through ’30 Causes,’ with our week 15 donation going to Big Brothers Big Sisters of Metro Atlanta! The Big Brothers Big Sisters of America coalition is one of the oldest and largest youth mentoring organizations in the country, and provides children of all ages with one-on-one volunteer mentors and professionally-supported relationships. According to a 1995 study, children who were mentored through Big Brothers Big Sisters programs were over 50% less likely to skip school and over 35% less likely to use drugs and alcohol. Locally, employees of Access dedicate their time to working with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Metro Atlanta.

For more information on how you can get involved, please visit www.bbbsatl.org
