At Big Brothers Big Sisters of Massachusetts Bay we have been changing the lives of children for over 60 years, and we’re just getting started! Our mission has remained the same since 1949: to promote the healthy development of children through the nurturing of continuing, one-to-one friendships with caring, responsible adults supported by trained professional staff. Big Brothers Big Sisters helps children realize their potential and reach for brighter futures. We seek to raise children up – helping them achieve educational success, avoid risky behaviors, and form better relationships -- and break cycles too often associated with family and community poverty. We are 98% donor supported; it is only with your help that we can carry out our mission and, ultimately, change the trajectory of a child’s life. While our volunteer Big Brothers and Big Sisters are the direct agents of change, we would not be able to recruit, assess, and train our Bigs or professionally match and support Big Little relationships without your help. You are truly making a difference!
