Changing Perspectives. Changing Lives.
For nearly 100 years, Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Greater Twin Cities has operated under the belief that inherent in every child is the ability to succeed and thrive.
We make meaningful, monitored matches between adult volunteers (Bigs) and children ages 6 to 18 (Littles) in the Twin Cities. We develop positive relationships that have a direct and lasting impact on the lives of young people.
A Perfect Match.
Every Big Brothers Big Sisters match is carefully administered and held to the highest standards. Our staff strives for matches that are safe, well-suited to each child's needs, harmonious and built to last.
But don't think of us simply as matchmakers. We provide ongoing support and supervision to every Big, Little, and Little's family. We offer training and advice to ensure the match is working for everyone involved. It is this strong foundation of support that maximizes the likelihood that a match will thrive. All of this is made possible only through your financial support.
We are here to start something
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.
A Little Guidance
83% of former Littles say their Big instilled values and principles that have guided them through life.
