Big Brothers Big Sisters of Cape Cod & the Islands

With boys referred to our program at a rate 4 times greater than girls, the need for male mentors (Big Brothers) is ever present.

Being a Big is simple, a few hours, twice a month is all takes to help defend and ignite potential for the youth of Cape Cod & the islands. No one is too young (18) or too old (our oldest Big is in his 80's) to make a lasting impact on the life of a child, and your own. From hiking, biking, trips to the beach, mini-golf, ice cream or simply hanging out, the time that you spend helps to guide and shape a future generation of youth. In our program, you're never alone to figure it out, each volunteer has a professional trained support person to guide them through the life of their mentoring friendship.

With COVID-19, we have programs for all comfort levels. From virtual mentoring to socially distanced in person outings, we ensure the safety of our Bigs, Littles and their families.

Not a guy, but know someone who would make a great Big Brother? Forward them this opportunity today!
