Big Brothers Big Sisters of New York City CELEBRATES 105th  Anniversary

- Founder of America’s Mentoring movement -

 

Big Brothers Big Sisters of New York City has been nurturing children’s potential
since 1904
when Ernest Coulter, the Clerk of the Manhattan Children’s Court,
realized that the personal interest of one caring adult could have the power to
 change the life of a troubled youth.  An early advocate for preventive services
 over incarceration, Mr. Coulter urged business and community

 

 

leaders to get involved in the lives of children who were on the verge of being
 branded criminals for life.  With his call for volunteers, America's national
mentoring movement was born.

 

More than one hundred years later, the need to help at-risk youth break their feelings
of isolation and connect with positive adult role models is stronger than ever. 
The majority of children at-risk in the nation are from low-income
single-family households where their parents/caregivers are struggling to do the job
 of two.  Research has consistently demonstrated the ability of mentoring -
in particular, the one-to-one mentoring model under the guidance of trained
case managers - to boost self-confidence, reduce negative behaviors, and
improve academic attendance and performance of at-risk youth.

 

Through the support of individuals, foundations and corporations, Big Brothers
Big Sisters of New York City
has been able to reach out to the city’s
most disadvantaged children matching them with caring mentors, helping them
 to achieve bright and productive futures
