Big Brother Program

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Northwestern Ohio

Our Mission: To provide quality mentoring relationships between children and qualified adults in Northwestern Ohio and promote children’s development into competent, confident and caring individuals.

Our Purpose: To provide a one-to-one relationship with a supportive adult to children who need the personal guidance and support which a volunteer Big Brother/Big Sister can provide. The value of the program lies in the personal relationship between the child and adult. The knowledge on the part of the child that somebody is interested in him or her as an individual increases self-esteem. The agency's professional staff supervises these matches.
