Give a Child the Gift of a Mentor
For more than 40 years Big Brothers Big Sisters has been matching youth ages 6-17 with caring, adult mentors in Galveston County. A study for Big Brothers Big Sisters confirmed that children are more confident, show improved behaviors, and make better life choices when they are matched with a Big Brother or Big Sister. As a parent, you recognize the potential of your child better than anyone. By giving them the opportunity to be part of Big Brothers Big Sisters, you’re starting them down a path to an even brighter, more promising future.
Safety from the start
Your child’s safety is extremely important. Before we make a match, Big Brothers Big Sisters conducts a thorough background check and interview on every volunteer. Bigs and Littles are matched on several factors including location, personalities and interests. Every relationship is closely monitored and we provide ongoing support so matches can grow into lasting friendships.
