About Big Brothers Big Sisters of Hampshire County
Bangs Community Center, 70 Boltwood Walk, Amherst, MA 01002, US
Since 1975 Big Brothers Big Sisters of Hampshire County has been providing one-to-one mentoring relationships to local children in need of positive adult influence and friendship. Supervised by a staff of professional case managers, volunteers spend time weekly with a child for at least one year developing a positive, trusting, and enriching friendship. A special person, such as a "Big Brother" or "Big Sister" can often be the one factor that can change the destiny of a child’s life, providing the resources and encouragement to become a productive and healthy adult.
Big Brothers Big Sisters of Hampshire County provides long-term one-to-one mentoring matches for children who could benefit from extra adult attention and friendship. Children ages 6-18 are matched with caring adults in the community to spend time together each week for at least one year. A team of case managers screen Bigs and Littles to make and oversee matches based on gender, geography, and interests.
