Mission: To provide children facing adversity with strong and enduring, professionally supported one-to-one relationships that change their lives for the better, forever.
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 (“Bigs”) and children (“Littles”) in communities across the country. We develop positive relationships that have a direct and lasting effect on the lives of young people.
Big Brothers Big Sisters in Hampton Roads matches caring, consistent and compassionate mentors with military affiliated middle school aged youth in need of support. Bigs are members of the community who would like to volunteer and give back and each volunteer is thoroughly background checked, screened and trained. Bigs and Littles are matched based on shared interests and compatible personalities and meet to share activities that they both enjoy.
