The community based program at BBBS involves an adult mentor being matched with a child. Some "Bigs" meet their "Littles" on the weekends. Others get together with their Littles in the evenings. Matches do activities together on their own and develop a schedule that works for them. BBBS also provides many opportunities for activities whether it be tickets to a game or a show, or game days with other matches. Each "match" is supervised and supported by an agency Match Support Specialist. For just a few hours, a couple times per month, you can give a child the invaluable gift of your friendship.

Mission Statement

The mission of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Pittsburgh is to make positive differences in the lives of children by providing one-to-one mentoring programs and related services that help youth discover their highest potential and grow to become responsible adults leading productive and rewarding lives.

Description

For more than 40 years, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Pittsburgh has been recognized as the premier mentoring organization in the region. Since 1965, we have matched more than 13,000 children with responsible, caring adult mentors. Preventative in nature, our program unites the agency staff, volunteer mentors, and parents/guardians who work together to deter the occurrence of problematic behaviors in children before they are able to take root. Through role modeling, guidance and friendship, our volunteers fill a void for children who are critically in need of stable and supportive bonds with caring adults.
