Who We Are
Gulf Coast Big Brothers Sisters has been mentoring the youth of Galveston County since 1975. Big Brothers Big Sisters is the oldest and largest one-to-one mentoring organization in the country. The organization celebrated 110 years nationally in 2014. Although we are a member agency of Big Brothers Big Sisters of America, we are operated, governed and sustained locally.
The mission of Gulf Coast Big Brothers Big Sisters is to provide children facing adversity with strong and enduring, professionally supported one-to-one relationships that change their lives for the better, forever.
The vision of Gulf Coast Big Brothers Big Sisters is for all children to achieve success in life. By partnering with parents/guardians, volunteers and others in Galveston County, we are accountable for each child in our program achieving higher aspirations, greater confidence, and better relationships. Collectively, we are contributing to better schools, brighter futures and stronger communities for all.
