About Big Brothers Big Sisters 
Big Brothers Big Sisters of Family Services of Westchester (BBBS), an affiliate of BBBS of America, helps at-risk children reach their potential through professionally supported one-to-one relationships. Bigs and Littles have fun together — and create memories that last a lifetime. We call it “Little moments… Big magic.” Research points to the powerful, positive, lasting impact Bigs have on children’s lives. 

Littles are:

  • 52% less likely to skip school
  • 46% less likely to begin using illegal drugs
  • More likely to get along with their families and peers

How You Can Help
Just six hours a month as a mentor can make a difference in a child's life. Being a Big Brother or Big Sister is one of the most fulfilling things you will ever do, and it’s easy! Your Little can join you in the kinds of activities you already like, such as:

  • Shooting hoops
  • Playing board games
  • Going to the movies
  • Sharing a pizza
  • Taking a walk in the park
  • Hanging out together and talking

We provide a thorough orientation and training in building mentor relationships and working constructively with youth. Ongoing support by dedicated staff is provided to the mentor, mentee, and mentee's family. Become a Big and help to start something big in a child’s life that will last a lifetime. Help us to change children’s lives, one child at a time. Big Brother male mentors are especially needed.
