Our Mission

To provide children facing adversity with strong and enduring, professionally supported, one-to-one relationships that change their lives for the better, forever.

How it Works

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Metro Atlanta (BBBSMA) works with corporate companies, communities, and schools to find both children and volunteers for our program. These children and families are then interviewed to make sure they are a great fit for BBBSMA. Each volunteer goes through an interview process as well, where they complete a background check and training to prepare them to the the best Big Brother or Big Sister. Our team then hand-selects each Big and Little match, based on factors like similar interests and geographical location.

What better way to honor the wisdom, advice, and quality...
