What We Do

Our mission is to provide children facing adversity with strong and enduring, professionally supported one-to-one relationships that change their lives for the better, forever.

Big Brothers Big Sisters effectively improves the lives of youth and deeply engages communities through involvement with families, mentors, community funders, schools, and other partners. Our proven methodology for serving children produces measurable positive outcomes in the areas of:

· Educational success
· Avoidance of risky behaviors
· Socio-economic competence.

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Carolinas serves more than 1,400 youth in Mecklenburg, Cabarrus, and York counties. For 48 years, BBBS has made meaningful, monitored matches between adult volunteers (“Bigs”) and children (“Littles”), ages 5 through 18, that have made a far-reaching impact on children’s social, emotional and educational capabilities.


How We Are Impacted: COVID-19 forced us to cancel three of our most critical fund raising events, which collectively raise approximately $300,000+ annually. With this loss, we fear the impact will be debilitating at the very least. It can potentially be catastrophic to our ability to provide continued programming to the youth and families we currently serve and to those who need our service in the community
