Established in 1964 as an alternative to the juvenile justice system to reach the most marginalized youth, hundreds of  Littles, their families, and Bigs (adult mentors) are part of our program each year.

According to our most recent Youth Outcomes Survey (YOS), 

➢ 90% of Littles said their Big makes them feel better about themselves

➢ 65% of Littles agreed their Big helped them reach a higher level of education than they thought was possible

➢ 80% of Littles said they feel their Bigs help them a lot

➢ 77% of Littles said they are doing better in school because of their Big

Our mentoring model inspires youth equity and empowerment and engages intentionally with mentors, mentees, and their families to help break the cycle of poverty, contribute to a healthier society, and help shape the leaders of tomorrow. 

Your help makes it possible for us to transform lives. Your gift to Big Brothers Big Sisters of Delaware this year will ensure we can continue to impact young people in the year ahead.

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.
