Mission Statement

For the past 47 years, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Coastal & Northern New Jersey (BBBSCNNJ) has been making a positive difference in the lives of children through professionally supported, one-to-one mentoring relationships with adult volunteers.

Description

BBBSCNNJ provides one-to-one mentoring for youth ages 6-18 through our Community Based, School Based, Workplace, College, Bigs in Blue, Creating Access to Resources, Events, and Support (C.A.R.E.S.), and Youth Empowerment programs. By placing children in a quality mentoring relationship, we are able to provide them with the tools they need to become competent, conīŦdent, and caring members of their community.

We partner with parents/guardians, volunteers, and others in the community and hold ourselves accountable for each child in our program achieving higher aspirations, greater confidence, and better relationships; avoidance of risky behaviors; and educational success. We currently represent 10 counties in New Jersey, including Bergen, Hunterdon, Middlesex, Monmouth, Morris, Ocean, Passaic, Somerset, Sussex, and Warren.

i think i would be a perfect match for your search in recruiting because who would be better to understand the needs and wants of a teen then someone as young as me. I have the expertise and knowledge to provide impeccable service to your group , organization and the kids who need our help .
