CHANGING PERSPECTIVES. CHANGING LIVES.

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.

MISSION

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

ACCOUNTABILITY

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

VISION

All youth achieve their full potential.
