One-to-one Mentoring

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Eastern Missouri provides mentoring services through a scientifically proven 4:1+1 Relationship Model. This model is based first on matching one child with one adult volunteer and developing a strong friendship between the two. We add to this a team approach by connecting and engaging the four most important adults in a child's ("Little's") life - parent, mentor ("Big"), teacher/school, and our professional program staff - to help each child succeed.

Goals & Strategy

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Organization goals are focused on three key areas:
*Impact – We focus on relationship endurance and ABCToday! success. We believe coupling positive relationships with academic achievement is fundamental to living a positive, opportunity-rich life. We will continue developing ABCToday! using data to understand where we are progressing. We plan to work in partnership with schools and school districts to share our ABCToday! model with other non-profits. Additionally, we are going to find the ways and means to support our Little Brothers and Little Sisters in their post-secondary efforts. We believe this is a natural next step for us.
*Scale – We will focus the majority of our growth in St. Louis City and County. This area represents nearly 70% of the failing students in the State of Missouri. In fact, many of these failing students attend schools within 10 minutes of our office headquarters. We plan to grow services by an estimated 5% annually.
*Sustainability – We will focus on building an organization capable of enduring and growing. We will give particular attention to three areas – cash reserved, endowment and loyalty. We will reach back into the community to find and re-engage our alumni and elevate our parents to be activist for our mission. We will work intentionally with our 4:1+1 teams to ensure that they feel connected to and appreciated by our organization and each other, including the completion of our rooftop into an “Urban Treehouse"!
