Caring adults are needed to be mentors and positive influences for children ages 7-14. Our Community-Based Program matches Houston's youth who desire an adult friend with nearby volunteer mentors. Each match is made based on both the Big's and Little's preferences, personalities, and location.

Bigs meet with their Littles and enjoy the community together at least 4 hours a month for a year (matches can go beyond the first year since you become great friends and establish a relationship). During the time of the COVID-19 crisis, we ask that our matches connect via phone, email, penpal, and more!

By spending time with and showing interest in your Little, your life and your Little's life will be changed for the better, forever. Bigs and Littles choose what they will do for each visit, so your activities, your friendship, and your Little's successes are limited only by your imagination! Start something BIG!

Please contact Carlee Morgan at 425-923-0465 or cmorgan@bbbstx.org for more information.

Mission Statement

Our mission is to provide children facing adversity with strong and enduring, professionally supported 1-to-1 relationships that change their lives for the better, forever.

Description

Big Brothers Big Sisters Houston is a donor-supported volunteer organization that places caring adults in the lives of children through 1-to-1 mentoring relationships. By the positive impact of these friendships, children with a Big Brother or Big Sister are more likely to graduate from high school and are less likely to begin using drugs, begin using alcohol or engage in negative conflict.
