The Young Professionals Committee (YPC) of Big Brothers Big Sisters of San Diego County is a diverse group of dedicated professionals who volunteer their time, talent and energy to support Big Brothers Big Sisters of San Diego County’s (BBBS of SDC) mentoring programs.
There are two tiers of YPC - committee members and Board members. For membership dues, all committee and Board members are required to be Match Makers, a monthly donor, contributing a minimum of $15/month to Big Brothers Big Sisters. In addition, each Board Member is responsible for bringing in $1,550 annually to support one Big/Little match for a year. Some members are current Bigs within the Big Brothers Big Sisters mentoring program but it’s not a prerequisite to joining the committee. The committee plans and hosts several fundraising and networking events throughout the year in an effort to raise funds and increase awareness for the organization as well as recruit future Big Brothers and Big Sisters.
Currently, the YPC is comprised of over 25 active committee members who meet monthly to plan several annual fundraising events. Committee members help support logistical needs and promotions for each unique event or campaign in order to ensure fundraising goals are met for BBBS of SDC.
If you would like to volunteer or join the committee, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
YPC hosts several annual signature events including "Chocolate & Vino" and "Rockin’ Talent Show" as well as regular networking and volunteer opportunities (virtual until further notice).

The Big Brothers Big Sisters Mission is to create and support one-to-one mentoring relationships that ignite the power and promise of youth.
Currently, we are looking for different ways to reach out to the San Diego community about our need for volunteers, specifically male volunteers and Spanish Speaking volunteers, to mentor young children all over SD county. We have a large need for men as there are over 300 young boys just waiting to be matched with a positive role model. You can be a Big Brother or Big Sister if you are: 1. At least 18 years old , 2. Have a valid Social Security number, and 3. Are available to volunteer in the San Diego area for at least 1 year. Please contact us at (858) 536-4900 or visit our website at www.SDBigs.org to learn more about our programs and how you can start making a BIG difference in a child's life!
