Big Brothers Big Sisters of Hampshire County

Our vision is for all children to have opportunities to succeed.

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 6 through 18, in communities across the country. We develop positive relationships that have a direct and lasting effect on the lives of young people.

Since 1975 Big Brothers Big Sisters of Hampshire County has been providing one-to-one mentoring relationships to local children in need of positive adult influence and friendship. Supervised by a staff of professional case managers, volunteers spend time weekly with a child for at least one year developing a positive, trusting, and enriching friendship. A special person, such as a “Big Brother” or “Big Sister” can often be the one factor that can change the destiny of a child’s life, providing the resources and encouragement to become a productive and healthy adult.
