Programs

As part of the nation’s largest donor and volunteer supported mentoring network, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Metro Atlanta (BBBSMA) makes impactful matches between adult volunteers (Bigs) and children (Littles) throughout the metro area.

How We Serve

We work closely with parents to assign each child a perfectly matched mentor. Each match is supervised and supported by trained professionals. Our team consistently evaluates the mentor, the child and the guardian to ensure that the relationship is meaningful, impactful and safe for everyone involved.

Bigs establish a relationship with their Littles that help to teach them the skills necessary for everyday life. Bigs also take joy in showing their Littles a world of opportunities and endless possibilities.

We need your specific strengths to help a child in need today! Learn more about becoming a Big Brother or Big Sister.

“I came from a neighborhood where there weren’t positive role models and I believe I would’ve had a more streamlined trajectory if I had a role model from a younger age. I believe in the quote: be who you needed as a child.”

– Christopher, Big Brother
