Changing Lives for the Better, Forever

Big Brothers Big Sisters seeks to change the lives of children facing adversity for the better, forever. Our mentors work with children in the community, in their schools, and many places in between. Our unique brand of one-to-one mentoring has a Big impact.

So many ways to get started

School Based Programs

It may sound obvious, but sometimes the best place to help a child realize their potential is at school. Kids enjoy having their Bigs meet with them there, whether it's in the classroom or on the playground. And parents know what a positive impact it makes.

Community Based Programs

Community-based mentoring is the traditional Big Brothers Big Sisters relationship, where Bigs and Littles get together on their own to share fun activities they both enjoy. Matches typically meet twice a month.

Children who have an incarcerated parent have special difficulties to overcome, if they don't receive some additional help.

Virtual Mentoring

This type of program is safe yet FUN for Bigs & Littles. Matches can play cards, watch movies, listen to music, and so much more while staying socially distant from one another. The platforms used will be closely monitored by BBBSZ staff."
