Making a Big Difference, One Child at a Time
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.
Youth development experts agree that, in addition to their parents, children need other supportive, caring adults in their lives. Big Brothers and Big Sisters fills this need for children and teens who are most in need.
Mentors share everyday activities, expand horizons and help young people to experience the joy in even the simplest events. Our professional staff supports these one-to-one mentoring relationships, and national research has shown that the shared experiences between Bigs and Littles have a direct and lasting positive impact on children’s lives. A Big Brother or Big Sister can help a young person discover a world of possibilities and opportunities simply by being a positive adult role model & friend.
