Chino – This past week the Chino Rotary Club donated $500 to Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Inland Empire, and Big Brothers Big Sisters of Orange County.
Big Brothers Big Sisters organization is an adult-to-child mentoring non-profit organization that serves the children of its respective area. The organization chooses mentoring models from the community to help children in the area educationally and practically through the mentoring process. All mentored children in the Inland Empires enrolled in the program thus far have graduated high school, and 96% of those students enroll in college.
Significantly, studies have shown that children enrolled in Big Brothers Big Sisters have an 89% higher self-esteem rate than those not rolled, and an 83% better attitude towards school.
The Chino Rotary Club exhibited its dedication to the continued mental, educational, physical, and social wellbeing of the surrounding youth through its generous donation this past week. In doing so, the club has followed its nearly century-old motto “Service Above Self.” The Chino Rotary Club is involved a variety of other volunteer organizations, including the local Isaiah’s Rock, serving the needy and homeless in Chino.
