Would you like to change your child's life?
It all starts with the right role models. And Big Brothers Big Sisters is the place to start a relationship with one. For over 50 years we’ve been able to recruit, screen, match, and support mentoring relationships that have changed the lives of hundreds of thousands of young people across the country. If you believe having an additional adult role model in your child’s life would be a good thing, then you’ve come to the right place.
Every year, we match thousands of kids from all over Blair and Huntingdon counties with an adult volunteer mentor who is ready, willing, and able to provide a child with the friendship, guidance, and advice s/he needs to achieve a brighter future.
To qualify, children are generally between the ages of 7 to 16. Each match will also be assigned a program manager to provide the volunteer (Big), your child (Little), and you, guidance and support throughout the year.
Since volunteers are carefully screened, and we try to find the adult mentor that best fits the personality and interests of your child, it could take several months before we find your child’s match.
There is no cost to you to have your child join our program. And more than one child per family can join at any time. Our only request is that each child be committed to this program for 8 hours per month, for a minimum of one year.
