Hundreds of Delaware youth need a caring, adult role model.

Youth development experts agree that, in addition to their parents, children need other supportive, caring adults in their lives.  Today’s youth face a variety of challenges, and being matched with a Big Brother or Big Sister can help them navigate these challenges and reach their potential.

When children and teens have the influence of a caring adult, they are more likely to avoid risky behaviors, and to focus on academics and positive activities.

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Delaware has been serving Delaware children and youth since 1964.  We have a proven record of success, providing mentoring relationships that benefit everyone involved – the child, the family, the volunteer and the community.
