Their mission is to create and support one-on-one mentoring relationships that ignite the power and promise of youth. It is one of the oldest and largest youth mentoring organizations in the United States.   
“I joined Big Brothers Big Sisters of America because I like the idea of working with one child. I appreciate how the organization encourages building a long-term relationship, which I believe can be more impactful,” said Cayla Whitley. 
Cayla’s “Little Sister” is a 12-year-old who recently completed her first year of middle school. Their favorite activities include skateboarding and watching movies together.
