Since 1976, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Beaver County has operated under the belief that inherent in every child is incredible potential. 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 5 through young adulthood in communities across the country and right here in Beaver County. We develop positive relationships that have a direct and lasting effect on the lives of young people.


Create and support one-to-one mentoring relationships that ignite the power and promise of youth.


All youth achieve their full potential.


By partnering with parents/guardians, volunteers, and others in the community, we are accountable for each child in our program achieving:

Higher aspirations, greater confidence, and better relationships

• Avoidance of risky behaviors

• Educational success
