This groundbreaking study by The Boston Consulting Group demonstrates the power of investments in Big Brothers Big Sisters mentoring to deliver strong economic value over time. The study was designed to audit the financial return to society from Big Brothers Big Sisters, and it found that every dollar invested generates on average $18 in hard dollar returns to society. The research compared the life outcomes of 500 former “Littles” with a control group of individuals from identical family and economic backgrounds. Remarkably, the social return on investment or SROI for the most economically disadvantaged participants in Big Brothers Big Sisters mentoring programs is even greater – generating an average of $23 in economic value for each dollar invested.
