Having a Mentor Makes a Big Difference
Kids today need mentors now more than ever. Whether they live with one parent, two parents, guardians or grandparents, having a mentor can be an important resource for kids from all backgrounds to help build upon their skills and foster their potential.
Big Brothers Big Sisters of Hampshire County (BBBSHC) helps families make these important connections and gain access to vital resources by matching adult volunteers (“Bigs”) with kids ages 6 to 18 (“Littles”). Through these meaningful one-to-one mentoring matches, we help children build their futures and strengthen communities. Together with parents/guardians, volunteer mentors, and our partners in the community, our professional Case Managers support young people as they develop positive relationships with a transformative impact.
Whether you get involved with Big Brothers Big Sisters as a donor, a Big, an event sponsor, an Advisory Board member, or advocate you will make a positive impact in your community and get back as much as you give.
Create and support one-to-one mentoring relationships that ignite the power and promise of youth.
United Way of the Franklin & Hampshire Region is committed to improving the health and safety of our community by strengthening the physical, social and emotional well-being of all individuals and is a proud supporter of our program.
