Big Brothers and Big Sisters are adults who say “Yes, you can!” to a child. They are the grown-ups we’ve all known during our childhood who took the time to listen, taught us how to skate, cheered us on to score the winning goal or consoled us when we didn’t.
Big Brothers and Big Sisters provide responsible friendship to children. Throughout the 150 communities that we serve, our volunteers provide caring and consistent friendships to more than 3,000 kids who need that extra someone. And they do so with the support and guidance of our highly trained staff of child development professionals.
Our carefully screened and matched volunteers are trusted friends to children between the ages of 7 and 12.
