Core 1:1 Mentoring Programs

As Miami's premier mentoring organization, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Miami's mission is to provide each child facing adversity with a mentor that awakens them to new possibilities. When we succeed, we make Miami a more incredible city for more incredible kids to grow up in.

Our mentoring programs are varied and can be customized to the needs, preferences and expertise of our volunteers - both individual and corporate. But essentially, we categorize them as follows:

Special Programs

We know mentoring works. National research demonstrates that positive relationships between Littles and their Bigs have a measurable impact on children's lives. When matched with a committed Big Brother or Sisters, Little Brothers and Sisters become:

  • More confident in their schoolwork performance
  • Able to get along better with their families
  • 46% less likely to begin using illegal drugs
  • 27% less likely to begin using alcohol
  • 52% less likely to skip school
