Big Brothers Big Sisters of Israel (BBBS IL) was founded in 2003 and is part of the largest organization in the world for mentoring youth (Big Brothers Big Sisters International). The organization is a professional and educational resource during a critical stage in its participants lives. All the children and youth we support lack a significant positive adult figure and are often times in neglectful households, either by circumstance or intent. Based on multiple studies throughout the years, this easily paves the path for criminality and at-risk behaviors. BBBS IL provides the youth the positive support and enrichment they so need, in order to make sure that each child can reach their maximum potential and grow up to be a happy, healthy contributing member to themselves and their communities.
