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 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. Click here to view our 2009 Annual Report and learn more about Big Brothers Big Sisters.
The Big Brothers Big Sisters Mission is to provide children facing adversity with strong and enduring, professionally supported 1-to-1 relationships that change their lives for the better, forever.
The Big Brothers Big Sisters Vision is that all children achieve success in life.
Accountability: We partner with parents/guardians, volunteers and others in the community to hold ourselves accountable for each child in our program achieving:
- Higher aspirations, greater confidence and better relationships
