Big Brothers Big Sisters
For more than 100 years, Big Brothers Big Sisters have been changing the lives of children aged 6-18 through its mentoring program which helps students develop the skills, self-esteem, and motivation it takes to become successful adults. Mentors, also known as "Bigs", are selectively matched with "Littles" to form a long-lasting friendship based on mentorship and guidance.
During Summer months, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Southern Nevada (BBBSN) offers Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) learning programs for its "Littles". To support the STEM Summer Science program, Rimini Street donated laptops to Big Brothers Big Sisters of Southern Nevada as a resource for students enrolled in the program. When not in use for STEM, these laptops are available for volunteers to help children with their homework and projects after school. Rimini Street recently donated Kindle tablets and office supplies to assist BBBSN's ongoing efforts to educate the children of Las Vegas.
