“Looking back, I feel you are what I needed, a constant, reliable Big Brother that expected nothing in return from me. You really are a role model to me, and I have become a better person for having you involved in my life.”
~ From a Little Brother to his Big Brother

Our commitment to safety and excellence.

Your child’s safety is of the utmost concern to us. We conduct an in-depth interview, background check and DMV check on every volunteer applicant and every match relationship is closely monitored and professionally supported by a designated case manager.

Making matches is our specialty!

BBBSLI matches children between the ages of 7-16. We take the time to interview you and your child and find a volunteer mentor who will best suit their needs and provide the most successful relationship. 20% of all our current matches have been together for five or more years, and the power of mentoring can be seen in the longevity and quality of the matches we make!

We know you see the endless potential in your child, and we believe that quality mentoring and match support can provide the Littles in our child mentoring program the opportunity to succeed and shine!
