Big Brothers Big Sisters of New York City has succeeded for more than 100 years by supporting the city’s neediest youth and helping to unite the city. Our vision is that all children achieve success in life. Our mission is to provide children facing adversity in New York City with strong and enduring, professionally supported 1-to-1 mentoring relationships with adults that change their lives for the better, forever. We partner with families, volunteers, organizations and the community to inspire positive change in all.
BBBS of NYC offers unique programs, tailored to fit the needs of a diverse pool of youth, including teenage mothers, children with developmental disabilities, or New Americans, as well as a diverse pool of volunteers, including corporate employees and seniors. In addition, the Center for Training enables BBBS of NYC to function as a mentor to other city non-profit agencies, propagating our experience, research and best practices in youth mentoring to others.
