About Us


Big Brothers Big Sisters helps children realize their potential and build their futures. We nurture children and strengthen communities. And we couldn't do any of it without you

Create and support one-to-one mentoring relationships that ignite the power and promise of youth.

All youth achieve their full potential.

For more than 60 years, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Arizona has operated under the belief that inherent in every child is the ability to succeed and thrive in life. Big Brothers Big Sisters makes meaningful, professionally supported matches between adult volunteers (“Bigs”) and children (“Littles”), ages 6 through 18, in Maricopa County and Pinal County. We develop positive relationships that have a direct and lasting effect on the lives of young people. Please consider being a volunteer mentor or making a gift to help children in our community who need and deserve mentors build self-confidence and realize their potential.


By partnering with parents/guardians, volunteers and others in the community we are accountable for each child in our program achieving:

-Higher aspirations, greater confidence and better relationships
-Avoidance of risky behaviors
-Educational success

All BBBS participants, including youth, families, volunteers, board and staff serving as volunteer bigs are not excluded on the basis of race, ethnicity, religion, national origin, color, gender, marital status, sexual orientation, gender identity. gender expression, citizen status, veteran status of disability
