Big Brothers Big Sisters

FSA’s Big Brothers Big Sisters mentoring program has closed and South County mentoring matches have joined the School Based Mentoring Program at CADA as of July 2020.

CADA and FSA share similar goals of making a positive difference in the lives of young people and have been collaborating since April 2020 to facilitate a smooth transition for the youth, their parents, and their mentors. Please contact CADA for more information about its Mentor Program.

In the past 32 years, FSA’s Big Brothers Big Sisters program offered one-to-one mentoring for children between the ages of 6 and 17 years old who were facing adversity. Children in the program demonstrated a significant improvement in their academic performance, self-esteem, and increased likelihood to graduate from high school and avoid risky behaviors.

We are grateful for the opportunity to have served the children of Santa Barbara County and for the support of the organization’s staff, volunteers who served as caring mentors, and members of the advisory council who served the program over the years.
