Every child cares about a good start into life. But not every child has a place in society which entitles him to it. Sometimes what is missing is simply a person who offers time and attentiveness.

Steinbeis TIB therefore supports „Big Brothers Big Sisters", a century old independent and charitable organization which is well established in more than ten countries. „Big Brothers Big Sisters" makes meaningful, monitored matches between adult volunteers ("Bigs") and children ("Littles"), ages 6 through 18, in communities across the country. They develop positive relationships that have a direct and lasting effect on the lives of young people.

With „Big Brothers Big Sisters" a boy is partnered with a male mentor, a girl with a female mentor. Mentors help children to discover what's in themselves. They offer for at least a year time and attentiveness, improve their self-confidence, their social competence and their learning motivation - confirmed by studies from different countries as well as the experiences in Germany. Children and teenager, whose surroundings offer less encouraging for their future perspectives, receive suggestions and sustainable impulses for education and training. Take for example Emine, a ten year old girl, who has to take care of her two younger sisters. Alone she may not leave the house. Emine always wanted to be a little sister herself. By the regular meetings with her mentor, journalist Sonja Weiher, she has gained as much self-confidence that she could present „Big Brothers Big Sisters" together with her mentor in school. And after she took part in a photographic course at the museum in Ludwigshafen, Emine told :"I wanted to discover the world, and now I have done it!"

With our social engagement we support the mentoring programme of „Big Brothers Big Sisters" Germany with donations and selectively focus in single projects on the steady buildup of the mentoring programme for children in the Rhine-Neckar-Region.
