Big Brothers Big Sisters targets the children who need us most, including those living in single parent homes, growing up in poverty and coping with parental incarceration. We serve children ages 6 through 18 in one-to-one mentoring relationships across four different core programs:


Before we make a match, we do our homework. After someone expresses an interest in becoming a Big, they go through an extensive background check and careful interview process. Then we match Bigs and Littles based on location, personalities and preferences. And we provide full support from the start, so matches can grow into lasting, fruitful friendships. It’s also important to note that the entire matching process is made possible through donations– we can’t do what we do best without them!

Each match is unique. Getting together doesn’t require a special occasion or expensive activity – just a few hours every month doing things the Little and Big already enjoy. For example:

  • Playing catch
  • Reading books
  • Getting ice cream
  • Going to a museum
  • Providing advice and inspiration
