For more than 100 years, Big Brothers Big Sisters has operated under the belief that inherent in every child is the ability to succeed and thrive in life. As the nation’s largest donor and volunteer supported mentoring network, Big Brothers Big Sisters makes meaningful, monitored matches between adult volunteers (“Bigs”) and children (“Littles”), ages 5 through 18, in communities across the country. We develop positive relationships that have a direct and lasting effect on the lives of young people.
Our local agency was founded in 1974 by a dedicated group of Yellowstone County residents. In our first year, we served a handful of children. Our agency now serves over 100 children in our community. We are incredibly proud of this phenomenal growth, but we still have much more work to do.
Big Brothers Big Sisters of Yellowstone County creates more than 100 matches each year by partnering with parents/guardians, volunteers and others in the community to help youth achieve: higher aspirations, greater confidence, and better relationships; avoidance of risky behavior; and, educational success.
September is Big Brothers Big Sisters month and we invite the community to volunteer or donate by visiting www.BBBSYC.org and learn more about how you can get involved in igniting the potential of youth in our community.
