56 Local Kids Are Waiting For You

56 kids in the Great Lakes Bay Region urgently need a mentor. Some have waited over three years! At Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Great Lakes Bay Region, we have a bold goal to End Their Wait and get these kids matched and off of our waitlist by the end of 2021. We need you to help us achieve this goal!

Kids waiting for a mentor range from 6-13 years of age, and come from a variety of backgrounds; though most come from single parent homes, or families struggling with poverty. Many are working to overcome academic challenges, experiences with bullying, or mental health concerns. Matches bond over low or no cost activities. something as simple as a walk in the park, a game night or cooking a meal together can have a Big impact on an at-risk child.

Join us! Be a Big, and ignite, empower and defend the potential of a local child today.

How It Works

  • Interested volunteers meet with Match Coordinators to learn about their interests and skills to make sure every match is right for both the Big and Little.
  • Throughout the friendship, Bigs assist Littles to build confidence and promote positive decision-making skills, and independence. Enhancing the self-esteem of a child can be a key building block in the development of their personality and overall approach to life.
  • All volunteers undergo a comprehensive background screening before being matched with a child (learn more about our commitment to child safety)
  • Match Coordinators stay in touch throughout the life of the match to help answer any questions or address concerns families or mentors might have.
  • If you can commit 2-3 times a month, you can change the life of a child through mentoring!
