IT'S MORE THAN A RELATIONSHIP, IT'S ELEVATING A YOUNG PERSON'S VOICE
We need caring adults like you who recognize the power and promise of Twin Cities youth. People who see the best in them, who support their dreams, who are there to listen and care. By enrolling, volunteering, or donating, you can help young people in our community realize their own potential. Take, for example, the match relationship between Big Sister Taylor and Little Sister Le'Asia.
Le’Asia is a shy, introverted child who has always wanted a big sister who understands her experience as a Black child growing up in a mostly-white area. Le’Asia’s mom, Tricia, contacted Big Brothers Big Sisters Twin Cities to see if she could find a strong, Black, female role model and friend for her daughter.
Le’Asia was matched with a young woman named Taylor, who also experienced challenges as a biracial child. Mom and Taylor connected about their shared passion for racial justice, and Taylor was excited to be an important part of Le’Asia’s growing community of Black and POC friends and family.
During the virtual match introduction in February 2021, Taylor offered up a few activities that she and Le’Asia could do together during their first few months. Le’Asia was excited about every activity that Taylor mentioned! Mom said that she’s never seen her daughter open up to someone so fast.
Tricia reports that Taylor has already become part of the family, that she is one of the best things to ever happen to Le’Asia.
“Taylor is such a beautiful spirit, Taylor getting matched with Le’Asia is such a blessing. With Le’Asia being the only girl in our family, having a big sister is exactly what my baby needed!” mom, Tricia
Stories like Le'Asia and Taylor's show that you can make a BIG impact when you invest in Big Brothers Big Sisters.

It's more than a gift, it's creating a transformational relationship.
Mentored youth excel in many areas of their lives. It's the student who makes measurable gains in academic performance. It's the child who transforms from withdrawn to confident. It's the young adult who now has hope and a plan for the future. Big Brothers Big Sisters Twin Cities seeks to create and support one-to-one mentoring relationships that ignite the power and promise of youth. It is our vision that all children achieve their full potential.
