Mission Statement

Since 1975 Big Brothers Big Sisters of Hampshire County has been providing one-to-one mentoring relationships to local children in need of positive adult influence and friendship. Supervised by a staff of professional case managers, volunteers spend time weekly with a child for at least one year developing a positive, trusting, and enriching friendship. A special person, such as a "Big Brother" or "Big Sister" can often be the one factor that can change the destiny of a child’s life, providing the resources and encouragement to become a productive and healthy adult.

Description

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Hampshire County provides long-term one-to-one mentoring matches for children who could benefit from extra adult attention and friendship. Children ages 6-18 are matched with caring adults in the community to spend time together each week for at least one year. A team of case managers screen Bigs and Littles to make and oversee matches based on gender, geography, and interests.
