Create and support one-to-one mentoring relationships that ignite the power and promise of youth

Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Capital Region (BBBSCR) is a non-profit organization that creates and supports guided one-to-one mentoring to ignite and power the promise of youth. We match children (we call them "Littles") with mentors (we call them "Bigs") in a strong and healthy relationship to empower their potential

HOW WE HELP KIDS

Our mission is to create and support professionally guided one-on-one mentoring relationships that ignite the power and promise of youth.

Why Our Youth Mentoring Programs Work:

Talent is equally distributed, but opportunities aren't. That's why at BBBSCR we work to close that gap. Our mentoring programs emphasize:

  • Educational Success
  • College Readiness
  • Exposure to Career Opportunities
  • Development of Pro-Social Behaviors

 

WHY SHOULD YOU BECOME A MENTOR (BIG)?

Because it is one of the most fulfilling things you will ever do. With just a 12-hour commitment per month, you can:

  • Empower a child to reach their full potential
  • Build an energetic and sturdy relationship that will last a lifetime
  • Enjoy your time as a Big Brother/Sister with your Little in fun activities
