Big Brothers Big Sisters of Puget Sound helps children realize their potential and build their futures. We nurture children and strengthen our community. And we couldn’t do any of it without you. #BIGGERTOGETHER
Since 1904, Big Brothers Big Sisters has operated under the belief that inherent in every child is incredible potential. 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”), in communities, like Puget Sound.
Our one-to-one mentoring relationships support the critical social and emotional development needed to help build resilience and promote the mental health and well-being of the children we serve across Puget Sound. We develop positive relationships that have a direct and lasting effect on the lives of young people. Now more than ever, we are stepping up to find innovative ways to serve our Big Brothers Big Sisters of Puget Sound community. #KeepKidsConnected.
Now more than ever, our children and their parents need emotional and social support. While working remotely to observe safe social distancing, our team continues to provide the support and resources necessary to keep our youth connected during these difficult times. Zoom, Teams, Skype, and FaceTime are just some of the innovative tools we use to conduct virtual interviews, so we can match youth with a Big Brother or Big Sister.
Within every child lies the potential for greatness. We know how important it is to keep our youth connected to both school and social support activities while home. MentorU is our safe and monitored mentoring platform for mentors and mentees to continue their relationships while they may be separated due to COVID-19.
Join Big Brothers Big Sisters as we partner with youth, volunteers, families and the community to be there for each other and to get through this crisis together.
