Incorporated in 1977, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Long Island (BBBSLI) has operated under the belief that inherent in every child is the ability to succeed and shine. BBBSLI makes meaningful, professionally supported matches between adult volunteers (‘Bigs’) and children (‘Littles’).
BBBSLI believes every child should have the opportunity to reach his or her full potential, both as individua...ls and citizens – that by doing so, they will not only do well, they will also do great things.
We believe that by changing the course of young lives we can in turn be changing the course of a community’s future. That it will lead to a reduction in poverty and unemployment, to safer schools and neighborhoods, or to a renewed optimism for growth. That it will even lead to change on a broader, more far-reaching scale. We believe that opening a child’s eyes to what is – opens their mind to what could be.
For 40 years, Big Brothers Big Sisters has been making a positive difference in the lives of our region’s youth by developing and implementing a wide range of mentoring programs.
