Transformative Change

1-in-3 kids in America are growing up without a sustained, adult mentor in their lives today, and in the Triangle, there is an estimated 42,454 children living at or below the federal poverty level. Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Triangle exists to break the cycle of generational poverty through the creation and support of one-to-one mentoring relationships that ignite the power and promise of youth. We recruit, screen, match, and support the Big/Little (mentor/mentee) relationship. We view mentors and mentorship differently than other organizations. For us, it is more than tutoring or offering advice; it is building meaningful connections for a bigger future for our youth. All our efforts serve as tools to disrupt and dismantle the systems of racial inequality, oppression, and poverty.

Become a volunteer. Inspire our youth. Get involved.
