Parent Testimonials

Over the past 35 years, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Western North Carolina has served over 13,000 children in our region. 

What do parents have to say about their child’s mentoring experience?

“It has been wonderful. Amari has learned so many things. She’s done so many things…And Kelly has just been a big positive influence on Amari’s life. They’ve rode horses, they’ve been canoeing, gone kayaking. Just meeting new people and doing new things—travelled places that I probably would not have taken her, just a whole new world that Kelly has opened up for Amari.”

“I’m proud of a lot of things—but I’m proud that I took this step to ask for help…and that was the absolute best decision I have ever made for the welfare of my grandsons. 

It has been absolutely, positively life-changing. I could not imagine raising these boys without the support of the Bigs.”
