Big Brothers Big Sisters

We provide young people with enduring, professionally supported one-to-one mentoring with positive adult role models.

About

Big Brothers Big Sisters Australia understands that every young person has a unique set of social and emotional needs. For many young people, these needs are often left unaddressed, hindering their ability to realise their potential. We want to change this.

Our long-term, intensive, one-to-one mentoring programs are designed to respond to the individual needs of young people between 7 and 17 years, particularly those considered to be socially and emotionally isolated. By matching young people with positive role models, our mentoring programs provide a supportive space for our next generation to foster a sense of belonging and self-worth.

The stability offered over the 12-month mentoring match enables young people to build trust and develop a greater feeling of acceptance. Volunteer mentors, or 'Bigs' work alongside their mentee, or 'Little', to equip them with the confidence and skills to engage meaningfully with their peers, family and community. With greater self belief and resilience, young people are empowered to achieve their ambitions, creating more fulfilled and connected communities.
