BIG SISTER BOSTON | 2018 ANNUAL REPORT


Dear Friends, We are proud to present you with Big Sister Boston’s 2018 annual report, highlighting all the ways in which we, as a community, invested in women and girls over the past year. You’ll read about Big Sisters like Lauren Hall, who invested her time and care into building a trusting, strong relationship with Little Sister Court. Staff invested their expertise and individualized support in our volunteers, the girls we serve, and their families. Partners, like Milk Street Cooking School, invested their resources to expand access to new opportunities for our Big and Little Sisters. Board members and funders invested their philanthropic dollars in the sustainability of our mission. Grantmakers like the Cummings Foundation and the Imago Dei Fund made long-term investments in our work with significant, multi-year funding of our mentoring programs. And yet, some people will ask us: Why girls? We believe that all children can benefit from the support of a caring adult mentor. What we know is that opportunity and access to equal pay, career growth, and formal mentors are disproportionately lower for women and girls, and even more so for women and girls of color. We know, too, that loss of confidence affects girls differently and in greater numbers than it does boys. By the age of 6, young girls are less likely than boys to view their own gender as brilliant, and between the ages of 8 and 14, girls’ confidence

BIG SISTER BOSTON | 2018 ANNUAL REPORT

levels fall by 30 percent. As you will read here, we know that by focusing on girls’ unique developmental trajectories, using research-based best practices that employ a gender-intentional lens, girls experience greater positive outcomes in academic achievement, interpersonal relationships, and the ability to avoid risky behaviors. Our hope is for a time when we will no longer have to answer the question “Why girls?” Our hope is that you will continue to invest in girls and the mentoring relationships we make and support each year. Ultimately, we hope that together, we will make Greater Boston the premier region in which all girls, and women, will thrive. In gratitude,

Deborah Re President & CEO

Mariann Youniss Board Chair

We ignite girls’ passion and power to succeed through positive mentoring relationships with women and enrichment programs that support girls’ healthy development.

HOW WE MEASURE We measure the results of our mentoring programs with the Youth Outcomes Survey (YOS), a research-based tool developed by Big Brothers Big Sisters of America (BBBSA) in conjunction with experts in the field of mentoring. These measurements are applied to our Community-Based Mentoring (CBM) program and our SiteBased Mentoring program (SBM). We include maintenance of positive outcomes along with improvements in our overall measures which indicate that Little Sisters are developing resiliency against risk factors they may face in their lives. This tool processes YOS data using the Reliable Change Index to determine meaningful change in scores. Because the index incorporates a margin of error and can determine between “significant improvement” and “trending toward significant improvement” in girls’ positive outcomes, the data we report will provide a more statistically rigorous analysis.

Dear Friends, Through positive, one-to-one mentoring relationships, that are made and supported with a focus on the unique developmental trajectories of girls, Big Sister Boston has established itself as a change agent in our community.

MATCHED WITH LITTLE SISTER COURT SINCE SEPTEMBER 2012

16

Nearly a decade ago, Lauren Hall was in her early 30s and had just moved back to the Boston area from Philadelphia. “I knew I wanted to put down roots here,” she said.

in my career and in my life,” said Lauren, who remembered writing “feminist manifestos” at age seven when she was growing up in rural Pennsylvania, and preferred her Barbie dolls to focus on their careers over dating and parties.

Part of that commitment meant getting more involved in her community. “I wanted an activity that allowed me to give back, but in a long-term, invested kind of way.” Lauren explored different opportunities, and ultimately decided that becoming a Big Sister was a natural fit for her. “The mentorship of women and girls has been a real through line

Around the same time that Lauren was laying down her roots, Little Sister Court was living with her grandmother, Kathleen, in Arlington. Kathleen described that period in their lives as chaotic. Since the time Court was three years old her home life was defined by transition, and she often spent time living with her grandparents. Court’s living

BIG SISTER BOSTON | 2018 ANNUAL REPORT


“Lauren’s been her refuge. I’ve seen this joy coming back to her.” -KATHLEEN, COURT’S GRANDMOTHER situation continued to be unstable until her grandparents became her legal guardians at age five. When Court’s grandfather passed away suddenly four years later, nine-yearold Court was devastated. It would be up to Kathleen to raise Court on her own. Kathleen had raised three sons on her own from a previous marriage, but she said she knew enough to know that: “As a young girl, you don’t confide everything in your parents. I decided she needed someone else in her life besides me.” It was at that time that Kathleen saw a commercial for Big Sister Boston and decided to enroll Court. Court wasn’t sure what having a Big Sister was all about, and according to Kathleen, Court’s childhood experience had, understandably, made it hard for her to trust or open up to new people. “I was kinda quiet when I first met Lauren,” said Court. “I didn’t tell her anything. I was like ‘I don’t know this person. I can’t open up yet because I don’t know a lot about them and how they work as a person,’ so it was just like one-word answers from me.” Lauren said that the training she received as a Big Sister and the guidance of her Match Support Specialist, Helen, helped her through that first year with Court. “The times I’ve most reached out to Helen, were when Court was going through particularly difficult situations,” said Lauren. “As someone who’s not trained in social work or navigating these situations, I would ask Helen for help navigating them.” Recognizing that it might be easier for Court to write down her thoughts and feelings at, Lauren bought a journal that they would pass back and forth between visits. She would write fun question prompts for Court to answer or encourage her to write about whatever was on her mind. “When we didn’t need the journal anymore, that was a real turning point,” said Lauren. That point came during the second year of

BIG SISTER BOSTON | 2018 ANNUAL REPORT

their relationship. Once Court realized that Lauren was committed to being in her life, she began to let her guard down. “After the first year, I was like, ‘I’ll stick with it, see where it goes,’” said Court. “By the second year I was in it.” Over the past seven years, Lauren and Court’s relationship has played a big part in developing Court’s confidence. “When I was younger, I wanted to be able to read people’s minds to be able to know what people thought of me because I thought people didn’t really like me,” said Court. “I believe in myself now. I know I’m able to be loved and that I’m a good person.” With Lauren by her side, Court has felt more comfortable stepping out of her comfort zone and has had the opportunity to walk the runway in our fashion show and help present our Believe in Girls award to Secretary Hillary Rodham Clinton on stage at Big in Boston. Last year, Lauren and Court went to the Boston Pride parade together for the first time. “I loved seeing how confident and happy you were,” Lauren said to Court, who had wrapped herself in a Pride flag and high-fived the parade participants. “The best thing I ever did was sign up Court for Big Sister. I love seeing the confidence she’s gained to open up to someone, let people in, express herself, laugh again,” said Kathleen. “Lauren’s been her refuge. I’ve seen this joy coming back to her.” Now 17, Court is applying to colleges and scholarships with the help of Lauren and our Sister Scholars program. She wants to study psychology so that she can help other kids. And, she wants to become a Big Sister. “I would say it’s a great experience for both Big and Little Sister,” said Court. “You could be sisters for life, like what we’ve decided to do.”

COMMUNITY-BASED MENTORING

BIG FOR A DAY

This one-to-one mentoring progam matches girls between the ages of 7-15 with a Big Sister. These Little Sisters meet individually with their Big Sisters at a date and time of their choosing, and engage in lowto no-cost activities that can range from baking to basketball, watching movies to simply talking about the Little Sisterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life and hopes for the future. Big and Little Sisters commit to at least one year together, meeting weekly for the first three months and twice per month after that.

As soon as a girl is enrolled with us she is eligible to participate in Big for a Day while she is waiting to be matched with a Big Sister. Every month our staff host activities for these girls who are each matched for that day with a woman volunteer. The fun, skill-building activities include yoga, science projects, safety training, and dance classes.

SITE-BASED MENTORING Our Site-Based Mentoring programs take place in schools and community centers in Boston, Cambridge, and Quincy. Big and Little Sisters meet once a week during the school day or their afterschool program, and commit to at least three academic semesters together. During visits, they read books, learn new skills, work on projects of their mutual choosing, or engage in physical activities. Site-Based Mentoring creates a safe space for girls to have fun, learn, and grow alongside their Big Sisters during their busy school day. 20

CAMPUS-BASED MENTORING

Our Little Sisters benefit from the long-standing relationships we share with Bostonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s many colleges and universities. Our signature campusbased program matches Big Sisters from Boston College with girls at the Franklin Field Housing Development. In 2018 we expanded that partnership to include matching girls at the Mildred Ave Community Center. Additionally, BC student leaders, both men and women who volunteer as Bigs, participated in a cultural responsiveness training led by Big Sister Boston staff. The training provided tools to confront institutional racism and oppression.

WORKPLACE MENTORING

We continued our robust Workplace Mentoring partnerships with Allen & Gerritsen and Fidelity Investments, with Little Sisters from Boston Public Schools. Little Sisters spend time with their Big Sisters at the Big Sistersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; workplaces throughout the school year. Little Sisters in our Workplace Mentoring program learn and grow from a meaningful mentoring experience as well as gain valuable career exposure in a positive work environment that fosters future aspirations. Big Sisters benefit from a shared experience that enhances workplace relationships.

HIGH SCHOOL MENTORING ACADEMY

This program highlights our commitment to not only nurturing the healthy development of elementary school girls, but also providing teen girls with leadership skills and training. Teen Big Sisters from Boston Latin Academy meet weekly with their Little Sisters from the Trotter Innovation School. The teen Big Sisters also receive weekly coaching and guidance from our staff and volunteers from Comcast, who work with them on specific goal-setting around college or career aspirations.

When Christopher Kimball’s Milk Street Cooking School opened its doors in 2016, their aim was to make cooking accessible to the Boston community. As such, they were looking to partner with youth-serving organizations to offer no-cost cooking classes to our City’s teens. They chose just two organizations, one of which was Big Sister Boston. “Milk Street was founded, in part, to provide outreach to the Boston community, especially to kids and teenagers, to get them excited about cooking and perhaps even a career in the culinary arts,” said Chris Kimball. “And, as it turns out, we have learned more than our students! These programs reinvigorate our staff and make us proud to partner with great organizations like Big Sister Boston.” In its first year, the program was offered to a cohort of Big and Little Sisters who attended a class together once a month for four months. The goals of the program range from learning how to cook new types of food to developing important life skills such as organization, preparation, teamwork, and leadership through cooking education. In 2018, we expanded the program to offer cooking classes for Big and Little Sister cohorts based on Little Sister’s age and added the Recipe for Success coaching program. In the coaching program, teen

BIG SISTER BOSTON | 2018 ANNUAL REPORT

Little Sisters and teen Big Sisters from our High School Mentoring Academy are matched for the day with women from a variety of fields, from teaching to government to nursing and banking. The women and teens cook together in a lesson led by Milk Street’s Director of Education, Rosie Gill (pictured left), and complete two intensive sessions on goal setting and communication skills led by Big Sister Boston staff. “It’s incredibly rewarding to watch two women — one teen and one coach — cook and enjoy a meal together, and then be comfortable enough as a team to take full advantage of the wonderful, and provocative, workshops the Big Sisters run. Milk Street is better for this work, and we’re very grateful to Big Sister Boston for their dedication to this significant partnership.” said Rosie.
