Big Brothers Big Sisters of Northwest Michigan


"Big Brothers Big Sisters of Northwestern Michigan provides children facing adversity with strong and enduring, professionally supported one-to-one relationships that change their lives for the better, forever.

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Northwestern Michigan provides one-to-one mentoring through two umbrellas of programming: Community-based Mentoring and School-based Mentoring. Across both programs, the foundational model remains the same: one child (“Little”) is intentionally “matched” with an adult volunteer (“Big”) in a long-term, professionally supported mentoring relationship."

This organization is always looking for new volunteers!
