Mission Statement

The Mission of Jewish Big Brothers Big Sisters of Los Angeles (JBBBSLA) is to assist children and young adults in achieving their full potential through innovative, impactful programs that facilitate lasting mentoring relationships and support positive development. JBBBSLA runs community-based mentoring programs, offers college scholarships, and owns and operates Camp Bob Waldorf, a 112-acre residential camp and retreat center in the Verdugo Hills of Glendale.

Description

For 100 years, Jewish Big Brothers Big Sisters of Los Angeles (JBBBSLA) has provided professionally-supported, free, one-to-one mentoring for Jewish youth, ages 6 -17, who could benefit from an additional committed, attentive, and positive adult role model.

We match Littles (mentees) with Bigs (mentors) based on compatibility of interests, personalities, strengths, and needs. Bigs and Littles spend quality time together twice a month engaging in recreational, cultural, or educational outings. They can also participate in agency-sponsored events with other matches. While participants commit to the program for at least one year, most remain in each other’s lives for much longer. JBBBSLA offers additional opportunities and resources through camp experiences, college guidance, and educational scholarships.

Our Bigs are caring, trusted, dynamic, Jewish volunteers (ages 21 or older) with a variety of personal and professional experiences. We do extensive background checks and interviews to ensure the quality of our mentors and to provide the best match possible. Our mentors often comment that the mentoring experience is fun, rewarding, and life-changing for them as well.
