Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Tri-Cities (BBBSTC) has been transforming the lives of children since 1985. With our office located in Kingsport, we serve the following counties: Carter, Hawkins, Sullivan, Washington, TN and Washington, VA. Our vision is that all children achieve success in life. Our mission is to provide children facing adversity with strong and enduring, professionally supported one-to-one relationships that change their lives for the better, forever. At the core of One-to-One Mentoring is a long-term, trusting friendship with a caring adult who models and teaches skills, behaviors and perspectives. Changes in the child’s behavior, attitude and school performance emanate from the bond built between mentor (Big) and child (Little). High-quality mentoring relationships of one year or more have the potential to produce enduring developmental outcomes for disadvantaged youth.
