This year, we celebrate 50 years of providing one-to-one mentoring to a total of over 12,500 children facing adversity in the community.
To celebrate our 50th Anniversary, we are sharing stories of our past, present and future from the people who have helped make it possible. Look for more information to come on ways you can join us in celebrating 50 Years! Connect with us on social media @BBBSENST for the latest news.
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.
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.
Volunteer to Be a Big!
Big Brothers and Big Sisters are caring individuals from every background, race, religion, and ethnicity that are willing to spend a few hours each month with a child.
We host volunteer information sessions every Tuesday at noon to give you a chance to learn more about our agency and the volunteer opportunities we offer.
