Mission Statement

Big Brothers Big Sisters of America is celebrating 100 years as the preeminent national youth-serving organization. It is the oldest and largest youth mentoring organization in the United States, matching caring adults with children, ages 6-14 years old, in one-to-one relationships.

Description

Bigs are all kinds of people - from high school and college students to working people and retirees - who volunteer to spend time with children. Through this mentoring program, both the child and adult can participate in everyday experiences that enrich both their lives. Prospective volunteers who commit a few hours a week, are carefully evaluated by agency staff. Each match is based on the needs of the child and the interests of both the child and adult volunteer. Once a match is made, professional caseworkers are there to provide advice and support to help the match grow.
