Founded in 1971, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Erie County is WNY's premier mentoring program. As one of the 500+ affiliates of the national Big Brothers Big Sisters of America, the agency must undergo an extensive evaluation and must meet or exceed over 250 minimum standards to remain a member in good standing. The goal of the agency is to place positive adults role models into the lives of "at-risk" youth in the hopes of improving their self-esteem and enhancing their chances of success in the future. This is accomplished by asking the volunteer, under the supervision of the agency's professional staff, to develop a relationship with the child based on trust, communication and concern.
Big Brothers Big Sisters of Erie County matches carefully screened individuals with children. The agency currently provides mentors through Community Based and Site Based Mentoring models. The program also provides services in a group model with one staff mentor and 5 youth.
