A CHILD IN NEED?

Become a Defender. Change a Life.

It all starts with the right role models. When children and teens have the influence of a caring adult, they are more likely to avoid risky behaviors and to focus on academics. Today’s youth face a variety of challenges, and being matched with a Big Brother or Big Sisters can help them navigate these challenges and reach their full potential.

We believe that all children should have the opportunity to succeed in life and live up to their full potential. Some kids need someone to help them along that path. Spend a few hours once a month as a mentor to a child and you can make a BIG impact.
