The Gift of Friendship
Welcome! As a parent, you recognize the potential of your child better than anyone. You want to give your child every opportunity to succeed and be happy in life. So, we're glad you found us! By enrolling your child with Big Brothers Big Sisters, you’re starting them down a path to an even brighter, more promising future. You are giving them a chance to see their unlimited potential and develop into even more responsible, successful, well-rounded individuals. Giving your child the gift of friendship with another positive role model is one of the best things you could ever do.
Safety from the Start
Your child's safety is extremely important to us. Big Brothers Big Sisters conducts a thorough background check on every volunteer in our program, and every relationship is closely monitored and supported by a professionally-trained Match Support Specialist. We will be in touch with you, your child, and their mentor each month to answer any questions and provide additional support.
Learn About Your Role
You know what’s best for your child. So we’ll need your help from the start, providing information about your child’s strengths and needs, and ultimately approving the Big Brother or Big Sister match. But your role doesn’t end there. Our staff looks forward to partnering with you along this incredible journey.
Our mentoring programs are effective in the short-term AND long-term. More than 90 percent of the children and teens in our mentoring programs experience academic, social, and emotional growth within the first year. Learn more about our impact!
