Changing Lives for the Better, Forever
What if every child finished high school, went to university, got a job and gave back to our community? Wouldn't that be the start of something BIG?
What do we do?
Big Brothers Big Sisters offers a wide range of mentoring opportunities to meet the varied needs of volunteers, children and families.
We facilitate meaningful, monitored matches between adult volunteers (Bigs) and children living with disadvantage (Littles), ages 7 through 17.
Serving as role models, our mentors teach by example the importance of giving and giving back, of staying in school, and for having respect for family, peers and community.
Each time we pair a child with a mentor we start something. Find out more about our various programs by clicking the Get Started button.
What do we achieve?
Big Brothers Big Sisters helps children and young people:
- stay in school,
- avoid risky behaviors such as getting into fights and trying drugs and alcohol, and
- helps them improve their self-confidence.
We hold ourselves accountable to our supporters by regularly measuring our impact. Learn more
