Our Mission Statement
Provide children facing adversity with strong and enduring, professionally supported one-to-one relationships that change their lives for the better, forever.
All children acheive success in life.
We are a donor-funded, volunteer-supported agency.
Big Brothers and Big Sisters are, foremost, friends to children: They share everyday activities, expand horizons, and experience the joy in even the simplest events. Within those little moments lies the big magic that a Big Brother or Big Sister brings to the life of a young person.
Professionals in youth development support these individual, responsible relationships. And national research has shown that the shared experiences between Bigs and Little's have a direct and lasting impact on children's lives. A Big can help a child discover a world of possibilities and opportunities simply be being a genuine friend.
Being a Big Brother or Big Sister is something that almost anyone can do.
The only requirement is a willingness to make a new friend and a desire to share some fun with a young person. Our volunteers consistently say that being part of a BBBS match is as enjoyable and fulfilling for them as it is for their Little's.
