The Mission of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Athens is to make a positive
difference in the lives of area youth through professionally supported
relationships with mentors and volunteers. Our Vision is a mentoring
relationship for every child who needs and wants one.
Do you remember a special person who brought excitement to the everyday,
broadened your horizons and put little moments of magic into your life? By
becoming a supporting donor or volunteer mentor, you can do the same for a
child, and you will both be forever changed by the experience!
Children need adults to help guide them through life's many obstacles. Big
Brothers and Big Sisters share everyday activities, expand horizons, and
experience the joy in even the simplest events. Within these little moments lies
the big magic that is shared between Bigs and Littles.
Professionals in youth development support these individual, responsible
relationships. And national research has shown that the shared experiences
between Bigs and Littles have a direct and lasting impact. A Big can help a
Little discover a world of possibilities and opportunities simply by being a
friend. Being a Big Brother or Big Sister is something that almost anyone can
do. Our volunteers consistently say that being part of a BBBS match is as
enjoyable and fulfilling for them as it is for their Littles.
