Big Brother Big Sisters of Southwestern Illinois

BBBSIL offers children who want and need a mentor a one-to-one, long-term friendship with a caring adult.

Bigs serve as friends, mentors and role models, helping children and teens gain greater self-confidence.

We are looking for adults 18+ who would like to mentor a child and start a new friendship! Our volunteer Bigs come from diverse backgrounds just like our youth Littles. They are regular people, just like you. You don’t need any special degrees or job skills. You just have to want to positively impact a young person. Role models come in all shapes and sizes, and YOU could be a perfect fit.
