ENROLL A CHILD
It all begins with the right role models.
And Big Brothers Big Sisters is the place to start a relationship with one.
For more than 100 years, due in large part to private donations, we’ve been able to recruit, screen, match, and support mentoring relationships that have changed the lives of hundreds of thousands of young people across the country.
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. LEARN MORE
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 coordinator. LEARN MORE
YOU'LL FEEL THE IMPACT AS MUCH AS YOUR CHILD
A study for Big Brothers Big Sisters found that kids matched with a Big Brother or Big Sister:
Are more confident
Are more likely to steer clear of drugs and alcohol
Get along better with their family and friends
Feel better about themselves*
