About Big Brothers, Big Sisters of San Diego County
For more than 50 years, Big Brothers Big Sisters of San Diego County has operated under the belief that every child has the ability to succeed and thrive in life. As the nation’s largest donor and volunteer supported mentoring network, Big Brothers Big Sisters helps children achieve measurable positive outcomes, including educational success; avoidance of risky behaviors; higher aspirations; greater confidence; and healthier relationships. By partnering with parents and guardians, schools, corporations and other community members, Big Brothers Big Sisters carefully pairs children (“Littles”) with screened volunteer mentors (“Bigs”) to monitor and support one-to-one mentoring matches that build safe, enduring relationships. Big Brothers Big Sisters provides children facing adversity, often from single or low-income households or families where a parent is incarcerated or serving in the military, with strong, enduring, professionally-supported one-to-one mentoring relationships that change lives for the better. Locally, Big Brothers Big Sisters serves children ages 7-21 through six distinct programs: Amachi (a program for children with an incarcerated parent), High School Bigs (after school 1:1 mentoring programs), Community Mentoring (the traditional 1:1 mentoring program), Operation Bigs (a program serving children with active military parents), Big Futures (education and career support) and Healthy Futures (a health and wellness mentoring program).
