What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Community-Based Mentoring

Community Based Program: An adult mentor "BIG" is matched with a child "LITTLE" and they meet regularly (about 6-8 hours per month) and spend time together doing activities throughout the community.

Population(s) Served

Mentors and children meet (generally at a school or workplace) over lunch or after school for one hour once each week during the academic year.

Population(s) Served

Mentoring between high school students and adult mentors focused on college access and success. Mentoring takes place via electronic communication weekly plus a monthly in-person session. Focus is to build strong relationship and ensure non-cognitive skill development for college preparedness.

Charting impact

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

Our top priority is to help change the trajectory of a young person's life toward financial stability and emotional health. We measure our "Littles" progress each year in the areas of educational success, avoidance of risky behaviors, and socioemotional competence.

Quality mentoring can change the life of a young person for the better. Our organization seeks to make the safest and strongest matches between a child (ages 6-18) and an adult mentor possible. We then actively support these matches through training and on-going conversations with parents, children, and volunteer mentors, to ensure the mentoring relationships thrive.

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Utah has assembled a staff of caring professionals who work to ensure that our "Bigs" and "Littles" are well-supported and that their mentoring matches and thriving. Our staff of 30 well-credentialed staff have earned 24 Bachelor's and 6 graduate-level degrees and in the aggregate have more than 90 years of experience with BBBSU. In addition our board includes corporate and community leaders who actively support the work of our organization. As a team we prioritize data-informed decisions to constantly improve the quality and increase the scope of mentoring services to children from disadvantaged backgrounds in Utah.

We have a clear understanding of our short-term successes. We know that year-to-year the children in our program who have a mentor for at least a year are significantly better off in academics, emotional health, and make better choices. Our understanding of the longer-term successes with individual children and in the aggregate is less well developed and a priority for us going-forward.
