At Jewish Big Brothers Big Sisters, we believe it takes a village – and a Big Brother or Sister is an important part of it. A “Big” is a mentor – an additional source of encouragement, guidance, fun and friendship for a child or teen who could benefit from the connection. All told, thousands of local kids already consider their Big Brothers and Sisters to be integral to their support systems – and thousands of parents do, too.
Plus, here at JBBBS, our belief in the power of mentoring-friendship extends to adults with disabilities in our Friend 2 Friend programs.
And countless volunteers report a similar positive impact from their involvement here.
