Anna Boyd-Bucy, Executive Director for Big Brothers Big Sisters said, “A nationwide study conducted for Big Brothers Big Sisters by Harris Interactive finds that adults who were involved as children in our program are better educated, wealthier, and report stronger relationships with their spouses, children and friends. We are delighted that Chevron is willing to help make that possible.”
Juliet Don, Policy, Government and Public Affairs Manager for the Chevron Corporation said, “We are proud to support the work that Big Brothers Big Sisters does for the children in our community.”
About Big Brothers Big Sisters
For more than 100 years, Big Brothers Big Sisters has operated under the belief that inherent in every child is the ability to succeed and thrive in life. Most children they serve are in single-parent and low-income families or households where a parent is incarcerated. As a part of the nation’s largest donor and volunteer supported mentoring network, they make meaningful, monitored friendships between adult volunteers and children. Funding provides for a system of ongoing evaluation and support that is proven by independent studies to help families by improving the odds that participating children will perform better in school, avoid violence and illegal activities, and have stronger relationships with their parents and others.
