What does Big Brothers Big Sisters of Snohomish County Do?
As the nation's largest donor and volunteer supported mentoring network, Big Brothers Big Sisters makes meaningful, monitored matches between adult volunteers ('Bigs') and children ('Littles'), ages 6 through 18, in communities across the country. We develop positive relationships that have a direct and lasting effect on the lives of young people. Professionally trained Big Brothers Big Sisters staff members work with our partners in the education and juvenile justice communities to find children facing adversity and assess how our programs can have the greatest impact. Big Brothers Big Sisters targets the children who need us most, including those living in single parent homes, growing up in poverty and coping with parental incarceration.
How does participating in Big Brothers Big Sisters of Snohomish County's Annual Campaign Help?
When you participate in our annual campaign, you have the power to change lives for the better, forever. We depend on the money raised to carry out the work of carefully matching children with caring adult mentors and providing ongoing support to the child, volunteer mentor and child's family.
For more than 100 years, Big Brothers Big Sisters has operated under the belief that inherent in every child is the ability to succeed and thrive in life. As the nation’s largest donor and volunteer supported mentoring network, Big Brothers Big Sisters makes meaningful, monitored matches between adult volunteers (“Bigs”) and children (“Littles”), ages 6 through 18.

We partner with parents/guardians volunteers, and others in the community and hold ourselves accountable for each child in our program achieving: higher aspirations, greater confidence, and better relationships; avoidance of risky behaviors; and educational success.
