It's all in an effort to provide long term one on one mentoring services to help at risk children achieve educational success and avoid risky and delinquent behavior.
Organizers say Big Brothers and Big Sisters will also be available to provide additional mentoring services to other existing agencies.
"We had a lot of great organizations come out and support and announce their partnerships and just to put this partnership in place will open up a new umbrella for us to be able to reach out and help more children in this community," Bria Hanson said with Big Brothers Big Sisters.
Juvenile judge Buster Landreau says Big Brothers and Big sisters is only part of the solution.
Phenix City along with Russell County will continue searching for more community and faith based organizations to help meet the needs of children.
