Big Brothers Big Sisters of Northwestern MI

About This Organization

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. The organization currently serve children in a 5 county region in Northwestern Michigan.For over 50 years, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Northwestern Michigan has been bringing smiles to the faces of children by matching them with adult volunteers in fun and rewarding mentoring relationships. The impact it has on children in the program is priceless, and the heartwarming stories we've collected from Big and Littles in our program over the years are endless.Mentoring is a powerful thing. It’s fun, most anyone can be a mentor and it’s life-changing. By simply participating in fun activities together and forming a trusting bond with a child, it can potentially rewrite a child's future, for the better. However, for as big of an impact that mentoring makes on a child, you’ll be amazed at what it will do for you, too
