BBBSAZ mission is to provide Arizona youth facing adversity with strong and enduring, professionally supported one-to-one relationships that change their lives for the better.
For more than 100 years, Big Brothers Big Sisters has operated under the belief that inherent in every child is the ability to succeed and thrive in life. As the nation's largest donor and volunteer supported mentoring network, Big Brothers Big Sisters makes meaningful, monitored matches between adult volunteers (â€œBigsâ€) and children (â€œLittlesâ€), ages 6 through 18, in communities across the country. We develop positive relationships that have a direct and lasting effect on the lives of young people.
Where We Work
What We Do
Big Brothers Big Sisters targets the children who need us most, including those living in single parent homes, growing up in poverty and coping with parental incarceration in central Arizona. Starting something begins with finding a great match between a Big (a volunteer and mentor) and a Little. Making these matches, and performing all the background work involved with them, is possible because of donations from people like you. It's also why we're able to offer such a wide variety of programs that pair children, ages 6 to 18, with role models in one-to-one relationships.
