Become a Big Brother or Big Sister

Since 1964, our local agency has cleared the path to the brightest possible future for youth in Sacramento, South Placer and Yolo counties. We operate under the belief that inherent in every child is the ability to succeed and thrive in life, and we work to develop positive relationships that have a direct and lasting effect on the lives of young people. Our one-to-one mentoring program primarily benefits children, ages 7-18, who are being raised by single parents, grandparents or other extended family, and foster families.

The core, traditional program of BBBS involves an adult mentor “Big” matched with a child “Little.” These community-based mentoring relationships involve one-on-one outings and activities, doing things the Big and Little enjoy together like taking a walk in the park, going to a museum, listening to music, or hanging out and talking. Some Bigs meet with their Littles on the weekends and others get together with their Littles on weekday evenings. Each match is unique and develops a schedule that works for them. Each match is supervised and supported by an agency Match Support Specialist.

If you're interested in developing a long-term one-on-one relationship with a child and be a special role model and friend they can trust, then become a Big Brother or Big Sister today!
