Big Brothers Big Sisters of Delaware
Making a Big Difference, One Child at a Time
Our purpose is to foster relationships that improve the lives of children. We have a proven record of success creating and nurturing relationships that benefit everyone involved, including the child, the family, the volunteer and the community. Youth development experts agree that, in addition to their parents, children need additional, supportive, caring adults in their lives.
Big Brothers and Big Sisters are most importantly, friends and role models to children who are in need. They share everyday activities, expand horizons and help young people to experience the joy in even the simplest events. Our professional staff supports these individual relationships and national research has shown that the shared experiences between Bigs and Littles have a direct and lasting impact on children's lives. A Big Brother or Big Sister can help a child discover a world of possibilities and opportunities simply by being a genuine friend.
