What We Do

Big Brothers Big Sisters helps children realize their potential and build their futures. We nurture children and strengthen communities. And we couldn’t do any of it without you.

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 7 through 14, in communities across the country. We develop positive relationships that have a direct and lasting effect on the lives of young people.

Since 1972, Big Brothers Big Sisters has been providing mentors (Bigs) for children (Littles) in this region. Today, we serve more than 1,500 children in Mecklenburg, Cabarrus and York Counties, through traditional community- and school-based mentoring and innovative specialty programs that connect caring adults with local children in meaningful one-to-one relationships.

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Carolinas has launched a new E-Store.
