Big Brothers Big Sisters of Metropolitan Detroit (BBBSMD) was formed in 1974 with the merger of five local Big Brother Big Sister organizations from throughout metro Detroit, with a focus on Wayne, Oakland and Macomb counties. We are the largest one-to-one evidence-based mentoring organization in Southeast Michigan serving nearly 1,000 youth annually with site- and community-based mentoring programs. All of our programming is rooted in evidence-based practices, further differentiating BBBSMD from other mentoring programs. Our mentoring model is certified by multiple federal government departments as an “Effective” evidence-based model in realizing positive outcomes for youth.
When it comes to matching youth with a mentor, it costs $1,620 per year, per match for the resources it takes to support the mentorship. Because of this, we need your support to fund the essential mentorship opportunities needed for youth in metropolitan Detroit.
Please join us in this year's Quicken Loans Community Challenge to raise the funds needed to match the over 300 youth on the wait list for mentors!
