Big Brothers Big Sisters is the oldest and largest youth mentoring organization in the United States, having begun nationally in 1904 and locally in 1971.
The local Delaware agency is a full affiliated member of the national organization, Big Brothers Big Sisters of America.
Positive long term outcomes with measurable impact are achieved through professionally developed and supported one-to-one mentoring relationships between children—who initially enter the program between the ages of 6-14—and screened and trained volunteer mentors.
The agency’s program model is the catalyst to strengthen assets that all children need in their development to become confident, competent and caring adults.
