Changing Perspectives. Changing Lives.
For more than 100 years, Big Brothers Big Sisters has operated under the belief that inherent in every child is the ability to succeed and thrive in live. As the nation's largest donor- and volunteer-supported mentoring network, Big Brothers Big Sisters makes meaningful, monitored matches between volunteers ("Bigs") and children ("Littles") in communities across the country. We develop positive relationships that have a direct and lasting effect on the lives of young people in our communities.
The mission of Big Brothers Big Sisters is to provide children facing adversity with strong and enduring, professionally supported one-to-one relationships that change their lives for the better, forever.
The vision of Big Brothers Big Sisters is that all children achieve success in life.
Big Brothers Big Sisters partners with parents/guardians, volunteers, schools, donors, and others in the community to be accountable for helping youth in our program achieve:
- Higher aspirations, greater confidence, and better relationships
- Avoidance of risky behaviors
- Educational success
