Our Mission and Vision
With the help of thousands of volunteer Big Brothers and Big Sisters, we have been transforming children's lives along the West Michigan Lakeshore for over 50 years. Our mission is to create and support one-to-one mentoring relationships that ignite the power and promise of youth. We envision a future where all youth achieve their full potential.
Due to COVID-19, we are not able to have in-person match meetings and have suspended all face-to-face activities. We continue to support and create matches, and encourage the bonds of social interaction in new and digital ways during these challenging times of social distancing.

By partnering with parents/guardians, volunteers, and others in the community we are accountable for each child in our program achieving:
• Higher aspirations, greater confidence, and better relationships
• Avoidance of risky behaviors
• Educational success
