"Jasmine is truly one of the most intelligent people I have been lucky enough to meet. Her incessant curiosity and open mind towards the world leave me in complete awe because I see a lot of myself in her passion, which is why our match has laid the foundation for a lifelong friendship and support system. It is incredibly rare to meet a young woman like Jasmine, who asks a million questions and is always willing to embrace differing views in her attempt to gain some universal clarity.
“Coming into this program, I had zero expectations for my match. I had no idea I would come to treasure and respect and love this person so sincerely and so deeply. Jasmine and I have a lifelong journey ahead of us – as friends, as sisters, as mutual mentors – and any other person or institution could only be blessed to experience her rational intelligence and beautiful perspective.”

Last year, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Texas volunteers provided 90,000 hours of mentoring to 1,500 Little Brothers and Sisters; the value of this time is nearly $2 million! Even more impressively, last year more than 97 percent of Central Texas Little Brothers and Sisters stayed in school, improved their grades and avoided early parenting.
