Big Brothers Big Sisters has been serving young people in Western North Carolina since 1982. We currently cover eight counties.We match children (ages 6-14) from single-parent families with caring, adult mentors.“Bigs” and “Littles” spend time together forming a friendship. In our traditional program, they participate in activities in our community like hiking on the parkway, playing ball, or baking cookies. In our site-based program, Bigs and Littles see each other at the child’s school or recreation center. They spend time playing games, completing homework, and having lunch together.
