The World Needs Big Brothers, Big Sisters
Big Brothers Big Sisters is the leading one-on-one mentoring program in the nation. In 1991, BBBS began in Bradford County by a small group of community members who wanted to impact children’s lives. Since the first match in 1993, hundreds of adults’ and children’s lives have been changed by this incredible program.
Since BBBS first started, it has grown immensely throughout other counties. Not only are they still matching hundreds of “bigs” and littles,” BBBS now has an office in Wellsboro, PA, and has started a school-based program.
Covid-19 had a hard impact on many of the children – in which BBBS realized the littles needed them now more than ever. Fortunately, the organization could adapt and shift a lot of their routine into virtual components. Some mentors were able to incorporate virtual activities, drop off care packages, and even write letters.
Big Brothers Big Sisters is always looking for volunteers! Anyone over the age of eighteen can apply to be a big brother, a big sister, or a big couple. If someone wants to be a little, they must be between the ages of six to fourteen, and a parent/guardian/supervisor must contact BBBS via the website, phone, or email for them.
