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.
