At-Risk Children, Can You Help?

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Beaver Countyprovides programs that are designed to assist at-risk children from primarily low-income families. Youth development experts agree that at-risk children benefit from having supportive adults in their lives to instill confidence and self-worth. 

Jordon’s Story 

“I met Jordan last year when he was introduced to my family as my seven-year-old son’s Big Brother. I have to admit, I was apprehensive about Jordan’s age and not entirely sure about the obvious cultural diversity between my rambunctious, rappin’ although highly intelligent little boy also named Jordan and this laid back, clean cut, teenage ‘Catholic School Boy.’ The pair quickly proved me wrong and restored my faith in the philosophy of mentoring. Little Jordan and Big Jordan created a bond that I’m sure will last a lifetime. My Jordan truly admires his Big Brother. This experience will surely influence my son to one day want to make a difference in the life of a child.” 

It is the hope that as the children mature, each will be positively influenced and guided by the constructive experiences that are shared between a Big and a Little. The children become well-adjusted, contributing members of our community. 

On Friday, September 3rd the Magic Million Golf Outing will take place at the Beaver Valley Golf Club.  Proceeds from this event help to support the Big Brothers Big Sisters of Beaver County programs.   For more information about this day of golf and other fun, please click here.
