OVER 30,000 Kids are waiting for a Big Brother or Big Sister.
Sometimes the wait is as long as two years.
Help us end the wait.
BECOME A BIG
Becoming a Big is more important now than ever as we all navigate the challenges and changes in our daily lives. Kids in your community need Bigs like you to bring support and instill confidence as we all navigate this challenging time.
Pepsi Stronger Together and BBBSA aim to transform communities by providing critical, supportive relationships young people need to thrive today. Currently, there are over 30,000 youth across the country waiting for mentors, called ‘Bigs’, with most being young boys of color. Becoming a Big is more important now than ever as we all navigate the challenges and changes in our daily lives. Studies show that children who have role models are more likely to do better in school, have better connections with family and friends, and are less likely to be involved in delinquent behaviors. To create sustainable, long-term solutions, Pepsi Stronger Together supports BBBS core programming, attracting more volunteers, especially men of color, and expanding Big Brothers Big Sisters’ reach in serving more young people.
Big Brothers Big Sisters serves young people from age five through young adulthood in one-to-one mentoring friendships. Bigs and Littles hang out 2-3 times a month for a few hours doing normal, everyday activities, like seeing a movie, doing homework, playing games, going out to eat, or just hanging out!
Each match is supported by a dedicated Match Support Specialist who is always there to provide resources and support specific to the Little's age. With a Big in their life, Littles in the Big Brothers Big Sisters program are empowered to ignite their potential as they grow in their self-esteem, earn better grades, and develop a lifelong friendship with their Big.
Join us to end the wait for youth seeking a mentor or consider giving a gift to support this work around our nation.
