Mentoring Programs: Become a Big

Become a part of something special & start making a difference in a child's life.

Our youth mentoring programs form lasting relationships with children.

We’re always looking for people eager to positively impact a child and improve their community at the same time. And, right now is no different. Mentors are in high demand. So, Add A Little. It's a BIG deal.

For a few hours, a couple times a month, you can give a Little the invaluable gift of your friendship. By simply changing their perspective of what the world can offer, you can literally start changing their lives. And sometimes it’s as simple as playing video games, going to a museum, or just hanging out together.

Why do we need Bigs? 
More than 1,000 kids in the Massachusetts Bay area are waiting for their Big.  Research has shown that having a mentor helps a child gain more self-confidence, a more positive outlook and be more successful in school. Join the thousands of volunteers who give a young person someone to look up to. And learn why so many are now saying, “I get back so much more than I give.”

But don’t just take it from us. Check out some Real Life Stories of Bigs & Littles right here. And if you still have questions, head over to our Big Brother FAQs for more answers.
