We believe every child deserves someone that believes in them.
Big Brothers Big Sisters is part of a nation-wide program, providing free mentoring programs for children. They provide children facing adversity with strong and enduring, professionally-supported, one-to-one relationships that change their lives for the better, forever.
Big Brothers Big Sisters operates three programs:
Children ("Littles") ages 5-16 are matched with adult mentors ("Bigs") over the age of 18. Bigs spend eight hours a month with their Little, for a minimum of one year.
Littles are matched with high school Bigs and visit on location after school for a 22-week period. This program is currently available at four of DeKalb County's elementary schools.
Elementary and middle school Littles are matched with adult Bigs who are scheduled to visit their match during the Little's lunch period every other week
during the course of the school year.
To schedule an orientation to enroll a Little or to become a Big,
