Why a Million $ Challenge

Big Brothers Big Sisters programs are preventive, rather than rehabilitative. They are proven to empower a young person to build self-esteem and resilience which helps them make positive choices in life, preventing anti-social or illegal behaviours before they occur and break the cycle of disadvantage.

Your participation in the Million $ Challenge is a development opportunity for leaders of tomorrow like you, to raise money to mentor today’s vulnerable young people. 

One million dollars will provide the much needed funds to mentor 1,000 vulnerable young people and positively change lives, two people at a time.

Ultimately the program challenges is for your team to raise as much funds as they can for Big Brothers Big Sisters through their enterprising initiatives. 

Big Brothers Big Sisters works with thousands of young people in Australia who face serious adversity and have little opportunity to develop positive and supportive relationships with adults. 

We empower and engage individuals by providing meaningful long-term mentoring connections that build a positive ripple effect of change across the whole community.
