Brighten a Young Person's Future


Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) Update!  

Thank you for your commitment and dedication to empowering at-risk youth in Delaware. The nationwide response to Coronavirus is rapidly evolving and we at  Big Brothers Big Sisters Delaware are monitoring the state response closely.  In consultation with the Board of Directors, and with an abundance of caution, BBBS-DE has decided to suspend all mentoring activities – in schools and in the community – starting Friday, March 13th. We will resume as soon as we can.  We are working on a plan to keep Bigs and Littles connected through our coordinators. Stay tuned for announcements.  We will stay in touch via email and provide updates when new information is received. Thanks again for your support.

Please contact your coordinator or any BBBS-DE staff person if you have questions

Hundreds of Delaware youth need caring, adult role models.

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.
