What We Do

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Los Angeles matches adult volunteers (Bigs) with kids (Littles) facing adversity to provide professionally supported one-to-one mentoring relationships that have a measurable and transformative impact on the lives of our youth, our mentors and our community.

What Does It Take To Be A Mentor?

Anyone can be a mentor. It is about starting a consistent friendship and inspiring positive change to empower children to believe they can achieve what they never dreamed possible. You can simply incorporate your Little into your everyday life: play sports together, picnic in the park, take your dog for a hike or go to the beach. Being a Big will be one of the most enjoyable and fulfilling things you do, while also being a force of change in our community.

How Do Bigs And Littles Get Matched?

Common Interests

We spend time getting to know Bigs and Littles to make a good match and lasting friendship. Do you both like sports, music or surfing? We look for things you have in common so you will always have fun together.

Community

Once matched with your Little, our involvement in your relationship is just getting started. We're always on hand to provide support every step of the way. You'll also be connected to our community of Bigs through a private Facebook group, agency-planned match events, and outings with other Bigs.

"I am most excited to hang out with my Big and just be able to go to different places I haven't been to before." #NewMatchMonday

New experiences trigger a dopamine release in our brains, making us happier and healthier. Big Brother Bryan and Little Brother Angel will gather up all of those positive neurochemicals as they embark on their adventures together!

"It will be fun to have a Big Brother because I only have sisters." #NewMatchMonday

Little Brother Jerrick is in luck! Big Brother Percy is ready to show him what it means to have a strong male presence in his life.

Many of our Littles come to us needing a role model. Just having ONE person there to help guide them can make all the difference.
