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.

The Big Brothers Big Sisters Vision is that all children achieve success in life.

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.

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Mercer County was founded in 1973 as an affiliate of Big Brothers Big Sisters of America. We are a 501C3 charity, and serve an average of 500 local children each year. We have earned recognition as the premiere youth mentoring organization in Mercer county.
