DId you know that for over 50 years,  Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Upstate is the oldest and largest youth mentoring organization in the United States? BBBS Upstate has been igniting, inspiring, and defending the potential of youth in the Upstate and believes that every child has the potential to succeed and thrive in life. The mission of BBBS is to create and support meaningful one-to-one mentoring relationships that ignite the power and potential of youth. Their vision is for all youth to reach their full potential though making meaningful, monitored matches between adult volunteers, Bigs, and children, Littles, across the Upstate.

BBBS Upstate offers community-based and school-based mentoring programs. Community-based mentoring consists of Bigs and Littles meeting for six hours per much to participate in fun activities they both enjoy. The school-based mentoring program allows for Bigs and Littles to meet for an hour once a week at the child’s school. While school-based mentoring is not a tutoring program, research has shown that all children matched with a Big in school improve their attitude and performance at school.
