Mission Statement

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

Description

For more than 40 years, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Texas has been pairing children, ages 6-16 with supportive adult mentors who build friendships and offer encouragement and support to each child. Our one-to-one mentoring model helps kids facing adversity achieve measurable outcomes leading to lifelong success.

Our Impact:

In 2013, our volunteers provided 80,000 hours of mentoring to more than 1,300 Little Brothers and Sisters - the value of this time is nearly $2 million! Even more impressively, last year more than 97% of our Little Brothers and Sisters stayed in school, improved their grades and avoided early parenting.

I've been helping out a 9 year old for several months. I always look forward to seeing him and doing fun stuff with him. Big Brothers Big Sisters did a very good job of matching us up because we have alot in common.
