Options: Vision, Mission and/or Purpose of Organization

The Big Brothers Big Sisters mission is to help children reach their potential through professionally supported, one-to-one relationships with caring and committed Big Brothers, Big Sisters and Big Couples. Our programs are designed to assist at-risk children from primarily low-income families. Youth development experts agree that at-risk children benefit from having additional supportive, caring adults in their lives to instill confidence and self-worth. It is the hope that, ultimately, as the children mature, each will be positively influenced and guided by the positive experiences that are shared between a Big volunteer and a Little. The children become well-adjusted, contributing members of our community.

BBBS works closely with parents to match every child with the right Big Brother, Sister or Couple. Each potential Big is screened, trained and supervised to help ensure that the relationship will be safe and rewarding for everyone involved.

History of Organization:

Big Brothers Big Sisters of America (BBBSA) has been the nation's preeminent youth-service organization for over a century. The agencies of (BBBSA) have been providing one-to-one mentoring services to at-risk children of single parent families since 1904. Our service is based on our volunteers. We have proven success in creating and nurturing positive relationships that benefit everyone involved, including the volunteer, the child, families and the community.

Locally, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Beaver County has been fulfilling this need since 1975. At that time, the agency operated under the sponsorship of the Community Mental Health Center. The agency functioned as an extension of the Beaver County YMCA beginning in 1981 until 1990, when Big Brothers Big Sisters of Beaver County incorporated independently.
