Big Brothers Big Sisters: Community Impact and Involvement
Big Brothers Big Sisters is an organization founded on providing children facing adversity with professionally-supported one-to-one mentoring relationships to make a positive impact in their lives. The organization makes it their mission to help "children in our community who are at-risk because they lack the presence of a dependable adult mentor to guide them and encourage positive decision-making."
The organization was established in 1964 and actively serves the Sacramento Yolo and South Placer counties. The organization has been a consistent presence in protecting the inherent potential of the children in our surrounding communities.
Steven & Robert Discuss their experience with Big Brother Big Sisters
Capitol Tech Solutions User Experience account manager Steven Vance has been volunteering his time through Big Brothers Big Sisters for almost a year. Steven got started with the organization thanks to his colleague at Capitol Tech Solutions Robert Haney. Robert has been volunteering with the Big Brothers Big Sisters since 2014.
"Cultivating an incredible friendship with Josh is one of my favorite things about Big Brothers Big Sisters" said Vance. "It’s already made a profound impact on the way I look at the world. Something I’ve really appreciated about my match with Josh as it reminds me of how the world is such a magnificent place. It’s been an incredible experience and I wouldn’t want to trade it for anything."
Steven continued to add how the organization has not only been a way for him to make a positive impact but coincidently how the organization has made a positive impact on him.
"Before becoming a Big I was spending a lot of time trying to figure out what was best for my future and how to get from A to B all the time. Selflessness was lacking in my life and it’s something that I feel we should all work on. If we serve those in our community we’re making an immeasurable direct impact."
One of the most rewarding experiences for both Robert and Steven has been the memories they have been able to create with their little brothers.
"I remember when my little and I went to a WWE event together" said Haney. "My little and I both really enjoy wrestling and getting to introducing him to some of his favorite wrestlers was awesome. Seeing the look on his face was priceless."
