Big Brothers Big Sisters of Southwestern CT
Big Brothers Big Sisters of Southwestern Connecticut is a non-profit agency that provides caring adult mentors to children facing adversity. We recruit, carefully screen, and train adults to act as mentors, match them with children, and support them with a Match Support Specialist. We operate on the premise that a one-to-one relationship with an adult provides the support a child needs to grow and mature into a responsible adult. No program fees are charged for the agency's services- we depend on the support of the United Way, private foundations, and personal and corporate donations from the communities we serve. We're always looking for people eager to positively impact a child and improve their community at the same time. And, right now is no different. Big Brothers are in high demand. So, Start Something! For a few hours, a couple times a month, you can give a Little the invaluable gift of your friendship. By simply changing their perspective of what the world can offer, you can literally start changing their lives. And sometimes itﾒs as simple as playing video games, going to a museum, or just hanging out together.
