Our Programs Start Something. For more than 100 years, Big Brothers Big Sisters has operated under the belief that every child has the ability to succeed and thrive in life. As the nation's largest donor and volunteer supported mentoring network, Big Brothers Big Sisters makes meaningful, monitored matches between adult volunteers ("Bigs") and children ("Littles"), ages 6 through 18, in communities across the country. We develop positive relationships that have a direct and lasting effect on the lives of young people.
a Mentor is a non-parental adult who is acting in a non-professional helping capacity with a specific young person to promote positive youth outcomes in a young person via the mentoring relationship.
