Important Message from Big Brothers Big Sisters
We pray for the victims, as well as the families and friends of those impacted by the mass shooting on May 14, 2022 in Buffalo, NY.
We will continue to provide support and mentoring to our community, as always, during this difficult time.
The Resource Council of WNY is in need of volunteers for their food distribution effort. They have transitioned to 3 days a week (M-W-F) from 2pm–7pm through July 8th. Here is a link to their volunteer registration form.
Our Commitment to Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion
We live in a country where race and ethnicity have created systemic obstacles for people of color.
Big Brothers Big Sisters seeks to remove obstacles and overcome barriers to achievement for all young people by connecting them with a mentor, a caring adult, who can be in their corner.
We believe that in every child, there is incredible potential.
Big Brothers Big Sisters creates and supports one-to-one mentoring relationships between volunteer mentors (Bigs) and children ages 5 through young adulthood (Littles) in Erie County, Niagara County, and the Southern Tier of New York State.
