Become a Big

Making a positive impact on the life of a child

could really be the start of something big.

If every child was able to realize their endless potential,

can you imagine what that would be like?

Becoming a Big will give you the opportunity to not only impact a child’s life today, but to transform their potential for tomorrow. For a few hours, a couple times a month, you can give a Little the invaluable gift of your time. By simply being there for them and changing their perspective of what the world can offer, you can positively impact a child’s life for the better … forever.  

What is a Big?

A ‘Big’ is a volunteer mentor who is matched in a one-to-one relationship with a child (‘Little’) in our program. A mentor is a friend, a supporter, a positive and consistent addition to the life of a Little. A Big Brother or Big Sister is not a replacement parent, a babysitter or a therapist. Rather someone to help share a different perspective on life and help their Little to realize their endless potential.

Once a Big and a Little are matched, they are assigned a Case Manager who will oversee and monitor the match for its duration. Our designated staff is available for answers to any questions, to guide and assist with any issues or difficulties, and to ensure that all parties are benefiting from the relationship. Additionally, BBBSLI provides training and support services for the duration of the match relationship.

There are many ways you can start something.

Become a Big Brother or Big Sister to a child on Long Island who could benefit from an additional positive and consistent adult in his/her life.
