In our community-based program, mentors from all over the Triangle Area are matched one-on-one with a child that has similar interests and lives within a reasonable proximity. You get to share activities with a child that you both enjoy! That might include fishing, playing sports, cooking a meal, doing on school work, working in the yard, or going to a basketball game. You get to enjoy these fun times two or three times a month with your Little Brother or Little Sister, at a time that is planned by you, the child, and the guardian. The commitment is for a year and the Big must commit to meet with their Little for at least 6 hours per month.
*In response to the COVID-19 Pandemic, BBBS of the Triangle has transitioned enrollment aspects to a virtual platform. Match interactions occur virtually for the first 30 days, and then transition into in person.
No additional volunteer opportunities at this time.

Changing perspectives. Changing lives. Vision: All children achieve success in life. Mission: Create and support one-to-one mentoring relationships that ignite the power and promise of youth.
All youth have the ability to do BIG things. That is why Big Brothers Big Sisters of Triangle (BBBST) ignites the potential within every child and advocates for them to explore the endless possibilities of what they can accomplish. There are an estimated 42,454 children living at or below the federal poverty level in Wake, Durham and Orange Counties. 64% of these children live in a single parent home. Although these youth may experience obstacles on a regular basis, they do not lack the ability to overcome those obstacles and reach their full potential.
For more than 20 years, BBBST has been Eastern North Carolina’s premier mentoring organization, defending the potential of future leaders in the community by matching at-risk youth (Littles) with committed adult mentors (Bigs). These relationships - strategically matched based on Littles’ needs and Bigs’ backgrounds and skills, as well as common interests, aspirations, and personalities - empower Littles to achieve success in life and become productive members of the community.
