About Us: Little Moments, Big Magic
In our own lives each one of us has been influenced by someone other than our parents. Think back to your own childhood. Who was that special person who brought a little magic to your life? Big Brothers and Sisters are mentoring adults and friends who not only help create wonderful memories for children, but help them live bigger lives. Studies show that children with mentors become more self sufficient and confident, do better in school and are more likely to avoid illegal behaviors.
Since 1919, the Jewish Big Brother Big Sister Association (JBBBSA), a charter member of Big Brothers Big Sisters of America, has been providing children with strong and enduring, professionally supported one-to-one relationships that change lives for the better, forever.
We match caring adult volunteers (Bigs) with Jewish children (Littles) ages 6 to 18 based on similar interests and personalities. Our Littles come from a diverse variety of backgrounds and needs. These one-on-one mentoring matches help children and teens become self-sufficient, healthy and productive individuals by pairing them with a positive adult role model.
