All youth have the ability to do BIG things. That is why Big Brothers Big Sisters of Miami, Inc. (BBBSM) ignites the potential within each and every child and advocates for them to explore the endless possibilities of what they can accomplish. Over 25% of children in Miami-Dade County live in poverty; although these youth may experience obstacles on a regular basis, they do not lack the ability to overcome them and reach their full potential.
For more than 60 years, BBBSM has been South Florida’s premier mentoring organization, defending the potential of future leaders in the community by matching at-risk youth (Littles) with committed adult mentors (Bigs). These relationships – strategically matched based on Littles’ needs and Bigs’ backgrounds and skills, as well as common interests, aspirations, and personalities – empower Littles to achieve success in life and become productive members of the community.
Whether through one-to-one mentoring or Group Engagement & Mentoring (GEM), Littles benefit from a positive role model who advocates for them and helps them reach their full potential. Currently serving thousands of Littles every year, BBBSM enables Bigs to empower their Littles to reach their full potential – their BIG potential.
