About: Big Brothers Big Sisters Columbia Northwest:
We recognize that children benefit from focused encouragement to help them reach their full potential. A component to mentoring’s long-term success is to connect a child with a positive adult friend who simply understands the child’s background and culture. That is why we created programs unique as the children we serve.
