COVID -19 UPDATE: COVID -19 UPDATE:THE SAFETY AND HEALTH OF ALL OUR VOLUNTEERS AND FAMILIES IS OUR MAIN PRIORITY SO WE REQUIRE ALL FAMILIES AND VOLUNTEERS TO BE FULLY VACCINATED*

PLEASE NOTE: At this time, we are looking for Male volunteers, Spanish speaking volunteers, and/or volunteers that live in or are willing to travel to the outer boroughs.

Hundreds of families seek mentoring services through Bigs & Littles NYC Mentoring each year - we can’t serve them without volunteers like you!

Bigs & Littles NYC Mentoring is...

Founded in 1902, Bigs & Littles NYC Mentoring strives to transform the lives of children through one-to-one mentoring, while strengthening entire families in hardship.

In Bigs & Littles NYC’s keystone mentoring program, youth ages 7-19 (enrollment till age 17), are carefully matched with a Big Sister or Big Brother who serves as adviser, role model, and adult friend. Mentoring matches meet twice monthly for activities such as enjoying a show or ballgame, working together on a service project, or spending time talking and exploring NYC. Matches are supported by a dedicated Professional Program Manager to oversee and guide the match relationship offering referrals and additional resources as needed. Our holistic approach to mentoring consists of working closely with the entire family, ensuring better outcomes.

A Match is...

  • The relationship between a Big (volunteer mentor) and a Little (mentee)
  • Bigs serve as positive role models and friends who help Littles set and accomplish goals
  • Bigs and Littles plan and participate in fun activities together which form a lasting impact for both individuals
  • Supported by a Match Coordinator (Masters level social worker or equivalent) at the agency

Bigs are ...

  • 21 years old or older
  • Interested in mentoring a Little of the same gender, age 7-17, who lives in the five boroughs
  • Willing and able to finance match outings (low or no-cost outings are highly encouraged)
  • Willing to pick up / drop off Little for outings if the Little doesn’t travel independently
  • From all walks of life! Men, people of color, volunteers ages 50+, individuals of all faith backgrounds, and Spanish speakers highly encouraged to apply

Big and Little matches connect...

  • Over time: Bigs and Littles each commit to the match relationship for at least one year
  • Face-to-face: twice per month for about eight total hours (usually on the weekends)
  • Over the phone: once weekly to catch up
  • To learn skills: workshops are offered throughout the year at the Bigs & Littles NYC office for hands-on match support and skill-building
