To provide children facing adversity with strong and enduring, professionally supported one-to-one relationships that change their lives for the better, forever
Big Brothers Big Sisters of America is the oldest mentoring program around with over 110 years of service with approximately 300 agencies nationally and internationally. We provide free one-to-one mentoring for children in the community. We match children with a volunteer also known as a Big Brother or a Big Sister based on the gender of the child. We ask that our Big Brothers and Big Sisters spend at least 8 hours a month with the Little. We encourage the Bigs to incorporate the Little’s hobbies as well as their own into fun inexpensive activities.
