Mission Statement

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

Description

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Los Angeles makes meaningful, professionally-supported matches between adult volunteers ("Bigs") and children ("Littles"), ages 6 through 18, throughout Greater Los Angeles. Many of the youth in this program come from extremely challenging circumstances at home, at school or in their neighborhood, yet they have enormous potential. With the support of their mentors, these students are beating the odds in BIG ways - many of them being the first in their family to go to college. 96% of the youth who have a Big Brother or Big Sister are graduating from high school and 94% of them are going on to pursue higher education. Founded by Walt Disney and Meredith Willson in 1955, BBBSLA is a leading non-profit in the Los Angeles community.
