All youth have the ability to do BIG things. That is why Big Brothers Big Sisters of Triangle (BBBST) ignites the potential within every child and advocates for them to explore the endless possibilities of what they can accomplish. There are an estimated 42,454 children living at or below the federal poverty level in Wake, Durham and Orange Counties. 64% of these children live in a single parent home.  Although these youth may experience obstacles on a regular basis, they do not lack the ability to overcome those obstacles and reach their full potential.

For more than 20 years, BBBST has been Eastern North Carolina’s premier mentoring organization, defending the potential of future leaders in the community by matching historically marginalized youth (Littles) with committed adult mentors (Bigs). These relationships – strategically matched based on Littles’ needs and Bigs’ backgrounds and skills, as well as common interests, aspirations, and personalities – empower Littles to achieve success in life and become productive members of the community. Our one-to-one mentoring relationships support the critical social and emotional development needed to help build resilience and promote the mental health and well-being of hundreds of children we serve across the Triangle.

Our Vision:  All youth achieve their full potential.

Our Mission:  Create and support one-to-one mentoring relationships that ignite the power and promise of youth.
