Big Brothers Big Sisters of Essex, Hudson & Union Counties

Partner Overview

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 6 through 18, in communities across the country. We develop positive relationships that have a direct and lasting effect on the lives of young people. When children and teens have the influence of a caring adult, they are more likely to avoid risky behaviors and to focus on academics.
