It Starts With a Little

Since 1965, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Atlantic and Cape May Counties has been changing children's lives by matching them with caring adults to guide them on a path to success.

Children need a caring adult role model

Big Brothers Big Sisters operates under the belief that inherent in every child is the ability to thrive in life.  Our staff makes meaningful, monitored matches between volunteers ("Bigs") and children ages 6-18 ("Littles").  We help develop positive relationships that have a direct and lasting effect on the lives of young people.

In 2017 we served 215 children

The Littles in our programs come from all walks of life, but they all share one thing in common; 100% of the children we serve have great promise.  In 2017, after being matched with a mentor for at least one year our Littles reported positive outcomes related to education, confidence, relationships, risky behaviors and hope for their future:

Improved Socio-Emotional Competency
Educational Success
Reduced Risky Behavior
