lijah inspires us. His bright smile, love for school and sports, and, yes, basically his overall zest for life keep us motivated to build
matches of impact, recruit quality Bigs, and raise the funds we need to keep Big Brothers Big Sisters alive in our community.
Big Brothers Big Sisters Services, Inc. provides children in need of a guiding hand with a professionally supported one-to-one
relationship that will change the life of both the Little and the Big - forever. And the impact does not stop there. Through these
relationships, families improve and children develop confidence in their abilities to achieve both academically and in their
everyday lives. As each child walks the graduation stage, the community improves as well. As a child achieves we are inspired.
As Board Chair and incoming President and CEO, we each served our first reporting year holding our respective titles with the
agency. The year 2009-2010 started with tight belts under the pressures of a tough economy and ended strong; exceeding
fundraising goals for Bowl For Kids’ Sake and Big Magic Luncheon. The agency diversified revenues, adding significantly
more program related grants with specific focus on mentoring children of prisoners, improving high school graduation rates and
serving teen moms. Each of these programs continues into our current year. The inspirational spirit continues.
The year saw changes, disappointments, opportunities and improvements in the agency. We focused on improving the quality of
our matches, the quality of our support and, most importantly, the impact of our programs. We must compliment our program
staff for embracing and implementing these changes. After experiencing a disappointing decline in the number of matches made
in 2009-2010, a newly reorganized agency redoubled its recruitment efforts and is looking forward to increasing the number of
children served in 2010-2011. The agency is inspired to grow.
Today, Elijah is a thriving 7th grader because his Big Couple, Matt and Leslie offered their time and their
spirit to be mentors and guiding forces for him. Matt and Leslie were inspired. They committed to
being a part of something that changes a life, a family, themselves, and a community. As an agency we
want to be a part of something bigger and hope that you will be inspired to continue to help us.
Thank you to all of our Bigs, our Littles, our advocates and our funders. You are making it happen. You are
making it possible for others to be inspired to Start Something BIG!

Program Outline
Moments Can Change a Lifetime
Who Are Our Bigs?
Our Bigs are ordinary people with busy lives, but to Big Brothers Big Sisters they are extraordinary. They are
individuals who, through their once a week commitment, are making a difference in the life of a child by
listening and providing encouragement.
52% of Bigs are Women, 48% of Bigs are Men
6 Married Couples share a Little
39 volunteers are over the age of 51
19-35 year olds make up our largest percentage of Bigs at 58%
Movie Night
When asked, our volunteers tell us being a Big is probably one of their greatest experiences. While they are making an impact on their Little
Brothers and Little Sisters, they are receiving the joy of knowing a child is looking up to them for guidance, friendship and a relationship they
cherish. These moments can and do change a lifetime.
To Become a Volunteer
We are looking for adult volunteers who care about the children in our community and want to help them succeed. While we have over 100
children on the waiting list, we want to match the right Big with the right Little. Our number one goal is the safety of our children and we do not
sacrifice quality for quantity. Before we match a Big with a Little, potential volunteers participate in an assessment process that includes several
steps: an orientation session, a personal reference review, a police background check, an interview, a training session and a home visit.
Who Are Our Littles?
All of our Littles are amazing children with unrealized potential who demonstrate a need and desire for a mentor. In the past 5 years, we made
over 1500 new Community- and Site-based matches. Our goal is to not only make new matches between Bigs and Littles each year but to provide quality match support so that our matches last well beyond the 12 month mark.
• 6-18 years old; 63% of the children are 8-12 years old
• 86% attend Equity Plus/Title I schools or receive other family assistance
• 194 were served in the Site-Based Program in 2009-2010
• 217 were served in the Community-Based Program in 2009-2010
• 94% of children served in the Community-Based Program are being raised by a single parent, grandparent, or other family member
• 25-30% of children served annually have or have had an incarcerated parent
Our Programs
Our professional case management supervision sets Big Brothers Big Sisters apart from all other mentoring programs. Through consistent
contact, our case managers monitor the progress of the one-to-one Big/Little match, evaluate the effectiveness of the match and offer support
where necessary. This support is the key to building longer and stronger matches, and having long term impact on the child.
Core programs
Community-Based Program
Through the Community-Based Program, an adult volunteer (Big), commits to spending time with a Little once a week for at least a year with
most matches lasting much longer. Bigs and Littles spend time together doing things they both enjoy such as: playing sports, participating in
hobbies or games, going to the movies or sharing a meal. By spending time together talking and listening to one another the Big and Little
develop a strong and lasting friendship. On average, there are more
than 100 children on our waiting list to receive a Big Brother or Big
Sister in the Community-Based Program with 60% boys and 40% girls.
“Working with Shadasha has made me grow as a person
Boys may wait up to two years for a Big Brother and girls may wait up
because I realized what it takes to be a good role model
to 12 months for a Big Sister. Community partners, civic, and faithbased organizations frequently sponsor activities to keep these chiland a best friend at the same time.”
dren engaged with Big Brothers Big Sisters. In 2010, 13 organizations
sponsored 20 activities for children on our waiting list.
- Big Sister Anne
Site-Based Program
In the Site-Based Program, contact between the Big and Little match takes place at the school or after school site. While the program is not
meant specifically to focus on academic tutoring, some of the activities in which the Big and Little engage may be school-related. Bigs may be
adults or students (high school and college) who build a relationship with a Little designed to help build the child’s confidence, competence and
learn to care for others. In many cases, these matches grow into a trusted friendship and transition to the Community-Based Program.
Special Initiatives
Teen Mom Program
With one of the highest rates of teen pregnancy in North Carolina, Forsyth County currently has more than 650 pregnant or parenting teens.
Many of these teen mothers have the need for a Big Sister to provide support and mentoring. The specific goal of the program is to provide a supportive
relationship with the encouragement needed for the teen mom to stay in high school and graduate. Through these relationships,
teen mothers are encouraged to chart the best course for their families so that future generations are empowered to break negative
generational cycles.
Mentoring Children of Prisoners
Children of parents who have been, or are currently incarcerated are at risk of following the same path into the prison system unless they
receive positive intervention. Across North Carolina there are 12,000 children of incarcerated parents. Big Brothers Big Sisters in Forsyth County
is participating in a statewide collaboration with four other Big Brother Big Sister agencies to serve at least 10 percent of these children by 2012.
In the Winston-Salem agency, our goal is to match more than 100 children with a Big Brother or Big Sister by 2012. In FY2010, we mentored 62
children of prisoners.
Graduating Our Future
Nearly 30 percent of Forsyth County high school students fail to graduate in four years. Statistics like this are bad for our community and more
importantly, bad for our children. United Way of Forsyth County agrees and created a comprehensive initiative (Graduating Our Future) to
increase tutoring, family involvement, counseling, and mentoring for students at-risk of dropping out. Big Brothers Big Sisters is a part of this
collaborative effort along with the YMCA and Family Services to provide a three-pronged approach focusing on improving the graduation rate
at Parkland High School and their largest feeder school–Philo Middle.
Graduate. It pays. (GIP)
GIP is a collaborative community program launched by concerned Winston-Salem business and community leaders to focus on improving the
high school graduation rate. Big Brothers Big Sisters’ volunteers mentor repeating 9th graders, Communities in Schools mentors 10th and 11th
graders and the Senior Academy led by the Chamber of Commerce mentors 12th graders at Atkins, North, Reynolds, Glenn, East, and Carver
High Schools. In FY2010 we had 35 new and continuing matches in the Graduate. It pays. Program.
“Austin is a very
inquisitive young boy
who likes to hear and see
how things work. He is fun
to be around and likes
to be active in the
activities we do.”
- Big Brother Charles
Positive Impact
National Studies* have shown that children matched with a Big Brother
or Big Sister are:
46% less likely to begin using illegal drugs
27% less likely to begin using alcohol
52% less likely to skip school
33% less likely to hit someone
more confident in their performance in school
more likely to get along better with their families
Additionally, several of our adult Little Brothers and Little Sisters (alumni) were recently part of a
study that finds adults mentored as children through Big Brothers Big Sisters were significantly
impacted by their Big. The findings** were as follows:
90% reported improved self-esteem and decision making capabilities
85% said the match improved their confidence
42% earned a four-year degree or higher compared to 22% of their fathers and 25% of their mothers
Alumni surveyed said they learned right from wrong (76%), the importance of helping others (84%) and other life skills (84%) from their Big
Of those who have children, 82% feel extremely or very close to them
Participants reported being extremely or very satisfied in their relationships with friends (72%), family (65%) and spouses (62%)
67% donate to or volunteer at religious/charitable organizations and 29% hold some type of leadership position in a
community group
More than half of the adult Littles who participated in the study grew up in single parent homes and described their childhood financial
situation as worse off than the average American household. The Big Brothers Big Sisters alumni reported that having a Big in their lives
positively influenced their self confidence, provided stability, changed their perspectives on life, taught them new things, influenced
aspects of their education, and pushed them to set higher goals and make better decisions.

“Joe is part of the family, we see him as
a real brother and sometimes I forget that
he is even part of the program. He has
been an essential part of our family’s life.
Not only has he been a role model for
Emmanuel, he has been an amazing
support system for the entire family.”

being there and having

In November 2009, Bert Grisard retired

from its conception in 1977, during which

and legendary compassion for children

ore than 1,400 bowlers representing
over 60 companies in Forsyth and
Davie Counties participated in Bowl For Kids’
Sake 2010. With an average of 10 pledges per
Bowl For Kids’ Sake
bowler, we received donations from more than
14,000 individuals. While every contribution is
important to the success of this fundraiser, and
especially to our agency’s continued service to
children, we regret that it is impossible to list
every BFKS donation, or even every individual
who helped make BFKS 2010 a successful event.
We are grateful for the positive support from
all bowlers and sponsors

exceed our goal.
