I am also pleased to announce that Big Brothers Big Sisters of America's Nationwide Leadership Council has awarded BBBSMC as a2013/2014 Quality Award Winner. Our agency was selected for having met high quality standards around child/volunteer retention rates and the ongoing support we give our mentoring relationships. These are research based indicators of the long-term impact our mentoring programs have on the youth we serve. The more we can retain the same mentor/mentee relationship, the longer we keep that relationship together and the more consistent support we give that relationship equals a strong match, which leads to positive outcomes such as improved self-confidence, avoidance of risk-taking behavior and academic success.
