About

Big Brothers Big Sisters is the nation's largest volunteer mentoring agency with over 100 years of history. We are looking for highly motivated individuals who would like to serve as a mentor to a child in either Riverside or San Bernardino counties to help us reach our three year goal of providing 1,000 in-need children with their own mentor.

Our evidence based program has yielded some life-changing results and it all due to hard-working and dedicated adults just like you! Because of our volunteers:

  • 98% of our Littles (mentees) graduated high school, 70% are the first in their family to graduate
  • 90% enrolled into college
  • 100% said they only thought going to college was possible because of their volunteer mentor, "Big"
Although we are very excited about all the positive outcomes we see year after year, it's the stories we hear from our Littles about their Bigs that tells us how big of a difference we our making in their lives. One of our volunteers, Richard*, is paired with a male mentee, Jay*. Jay aspired to make his high school's football team, however; he has never owned a football nor has he had any male figures in his life who took the time to teach him how to play. Once he met Richard, during Jay's summer break they began to work out together and practiced playing football. Once school started in fall Jay tried out for the team and made it! This "small" accomplishment helped boost Jay's confidence and determination to do better in school so that he remains on the team and he credits his Big, Richard, with believing in him and making his goal attainable. Join our network of inspirational adult volunteers to mentor youth and change lives. You too can be someone’s "game changer"!
