PROGRAMS

Our mission is to provide all children facing adversity with professionally supported, one-to-one mentoring relationships that change their lives for the better, forever!

Big Brothers Big Sisters makes meaningful, mentorship matches between volunteer “Bigs” and children “Littles”, ages 6-18. We then provide the necessary training, resources and support necessary for those matches to succeed. We conduct our program in a the following ways.

COMMUNITY BASED

This is our traditional match, where adult mentors are paired with children ages 6-16 with the commitment to see each other 2 times per month for a couple of hours.  Each match is hand selected by our team based on shared interests, geography and personality.  Big and Littles plan their own outings filled with things they like to do, like sports, going to the beach or music.

SITE BASED

Our site based programs are very similar to our community based program but take place on site and are facilitated by our team. We have two distinct Site-Based Programs.
