Big Brothers Big Sisters is not your typical organization. We help children realize their potential and build their futures. We nurture children and strengthen communities. And we couldn't do any of it without you.
Each time Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Bay Area pairs a child with an adult role model, we start something incredible: a one-to-one relationship built on trust and friendship that can blossom into a future of unlimited potential. And thanks to the first-ever nationwide impact study of a mentoring organization, we have the facts to prove it.
Where We Work
What We Do
The matches spend their time together engaged in activities that are of mutual interest, such as playing ball, going to parks or beaches, touring museums, cheering on local sports teams or simply hanging out. There are no mandated activities â€“ research shows that the level of connection, rather than what the matches do together, is the most significant factor in positive outcomes from the match. Mentors are provided with training, support and guidance from professional agency staff to help nurture a healthy, lasting relationship between each Big and Little.
