As of 12/4/2016 the servers are now in their new homes, the web server in Fremont and the archive server emma in Santa Cruz. Some of the pre-2004 archive programs are not yet online but will be soon. Your support is essential if the service is to continue, there are bandwidth bills to pay every month and failing disk drives to replace. Volunteers do the work, but disk drives and bandwidth are not free. Click on this bar to contribute, even a dollar helps.

Big Brothers Big Sisters is one of the most trusted, well-established and best-known models of community-based mentoring for young people. Mentoring provides youth with guidance and support, empowering them to succeed at school, develop healthy interaction styles, and adopt positive choices for their life. Big Brothers Big Sisters of Richmond and Tri-Cities serves 600-700 kids each year, most of whom come from low-income and single-parent homes, and who benefit greatly from the attention of a Big Brother or Big Sister. A new BBBS program will provide mentoring for the children of military service members, and special events will be held throughout January in honor of National Mentoring Month.
