A Message from our Director
Happy New Year!! Yes, for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Minnesota our new year starts July 1. While we don’t have all of the pomp and circumstance as we welcome a new calendar year, we have a lot to celebrate in our 50th year:
* We had 204 new matches (55 more than last year, 5 year high)
* We ended the year with 310 active matches (42 more than last year, 5 year high)
* We had 472 Littles matched throughout the year (49 more than last year, 5 year high)
* Our Quality Assurance Score ranged from 4.45 to 4.95 on a scale of 1-5 (2nd best in 5 years)
* 395 youth participated in our Big Futures programming (college and career readiness)
* We awarded 11 youth scholarships totaling $42,000 (two more youth and $14,000 more than last year)
While we do have much to celebrate, quite frankly we are never content knowing that we still have over 100 kids on our waiting list. As I write this, we are kicking off the new school year and focused on our goals for Year 2 of our 3-Year Strategic Plan.
Thank you for standing with us this past year and for your continued certainty that a mentor makes all the difference for a child.
