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.

Our third #MazdaMatch of the season may take the (fruit)cake for personifying pure joy! Big Brother Jerome & Little Brother Jaylen were just matched, but these two were clearly meant to join up on this journey. Lights get brighter when you shine together.

Big Sister Christina works at Paramount Pictures and was able to take Little Sister Stephanie on a tour of the studio's backlot! After their fun outing, Christina received this text from her Little:

"So happy and excited, this is the best day of my life, I love Paramount, you're my best friend ever!!"

We love the excitement!! And being the outstanding Big Sis that she is, Christina said this interaction gave her the opportunity to talk to her Little about the hard work that goes into finding a job and the importance of doing well in school.

An opportunity to teach is an opportunity to give back. Our kids need mentors. Lead the way at GoBigLA.org
