Since 1958 we have operated under the belief that inherent in every child is the ability to succeed and thrive in life. As the nation’s largest donor and volunteer supported mentoring network, Big Brothers Big Sisters makes meaningful, monitored matches between adult volunteers (“Bigs”) and children (“Littles”), ages 6 through 18, in communities across the country. We develop positive relationships that have a direct and lasting effect on the lives of young people.
At Big Brothers Big Sisters, we’ve been impacting the lives of children for over 50 years. And we’re just getting started.
We deliver mentoring programs that are grounded in best practices. All of our program activities are evidence based and ensure the highest quality of service. In 2016, we were honored to receive the "Quality Award" by Big Brothers Big Sisters of America. We were one of 36 Big Brothers Big Sisters Affiliates to receive this award in 2016, out of more than 300 agencies across the country.
Our partners make it possible. Creating a partnership with Big Brothers Big Sisters benefits America’s most important asset—our children. Each one of our partners helps start something.
