Big Brothers Big Sisters provides children facing adversity with strong and enduring, professionally supported one-to-one relationships that change their lives for the better, forever.
What We Do
Big Brothers Big Sisters is a research-based, outcomes-oriented mentoring organization which drives relationships with a shared sense of purpose to reach goals: building socio-emotional competencies, increasing academic achievement, and avoiding/reducing risky behaviors. To achieve these goals, Big Brothers Big Sisters' core program is Community-Based Mentoring: traditional one-to-one mentoring during out-of-school time to allow youth to ignite and harness their own potential by building a positive relationship with an adult and engaging with the world around them. Bigs and Littles spend 9-12 hours per month together, clearing the path to the child's biggest possible future.
