The mission of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Tampa Bay, Inc. is to provide children facing adversity with strong and enduring, professionally supported 1-to-1 relationships that change their lives for the better, forever. Volunteer mentors spend a few hours a month with a child, enjoying low-cost activities, or once a week at a child's school. Children in the program are more likely to graduate to the next grade level and less likely to be involved in the juvenile justice system.
Volunteers come from all walks of life. High school juniors and seniors can volunteer in our site-base program, visiting a child one hour a week at a near-by elementary school. And our adult volunteers range in age from 18 on up! From businessmen to CEOs to retirees, they all have one thing in common: the desire to make a difference in the life of a child.
