“Laughing together, learning together”
For over a century the independent, non-profit organization Big Brothers Big Sisters has been connecting young people to adult mentors from all different walks of life (different cultures, nationalities and generations.)
Our program provides 1:1 mentoring to support children and young people facing adversity.
The concept is very simple and effective: carefully chosen and well-trained volunteers act as mentors and companions who dedicate some time to their “Little”.
The 1:1 mentoring helps increase the “Little’s” confidence, helps them become more independent and opens up new doors in education. The “Little” can develop his or her social skills and – most importantly – learn to take responsibility for himself/herself and his/her surroundings.
The program is completely free-of-charge for young people and children. The mentors or “Bigs” are volunteers.
