Technology Better Connects Big Brothers Big Sisters of South Alabama – Donors, Volunteers and Contacts

Big Brothers Big Sisters of South Alabama is the largest one-to-one mentoring organization in south Alabama serving over 600 children and a minimum of 1,800 people annually across four counties.

“Big Brothers Big Sisters of South Alabama is thrilled to receive the Dream Big Technology Grant. It will have an enormous impact on the day-to-day operation of our office and the children, volunteers, and families we serve, ensuring the investment made by donors creates lasting impact across south Alabama. Our staff continuously strives to serve the needs of our community, and our hope is that this technology grant will allow us to integrate more systems and technology to improve our efficiency and effectiveness in the future,” said Aimee Risser, CEO of Big Brothers Big Sisters of South Alabama.

 

BBBSSA’s evidence-based mission focuses on a two-prong approach:

  1. Community-Based Mentoring allows Bigs and Littles to spend time in the community doing fun and interactive activities, working toward personal achievement and positive character development. To participate in the Community-Based program, Bigs commit to an average of 4-6 hours per month with their Littles for a minimum of a year.
  2. School-Based Mentoring focuses on personal success and academic achievement through weekly mentoring sessions at the child’s school. Bigs can enjoy activities such as helping Littles with homework, sharing conversation, setting goals, and/or bonding over lunch.
