Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Manchester

Our mission is to provide children facing adversity with strong and enduring, professionally supported one-to-one relationships that change lives for the better, forever. Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Manchester intentionally target youth from low to moderate household income so we can help offer them resources through mentoring to achieve success.

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Manchester was established in 1966 as a full affiliate of Big Brothers Big Sisters of America. In 2004, Big Brothers Big Sisters of America celebrated its 100th Anniversary, making the One-to-One mentoring programs of this organization the best-established and most documented for successful results.

The professional Big Brothers Big Sisters' staff matches the children - Littles - and the volunteer mentors - Bigs - based on personality and interests. The Littles and Bigs agree to make a one-year commitment to the relationship.

If they are involved in a Community-Based Match, the Big and the Little will arrange to see each other 2-4 hours, 2-4 times each month. The Big and Little meet as friends, doing the things friends do. It might be a trip to the Mall or a game of catch, or they could decide to be adventurous and climb a mountain or go whitewater rafting. Many Bigs and Littles take this time to just hang out and play games or talk.

The Site-Based Matches meet and see each other for one hour a week at a specified location. Their site might be an elementary or middle school, an after school program, a daycare, or a community center. Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Manchester also has Site-Based Matches at Girls Inc. in Manchester and the Boys & Girls Club in Concord.

Once the match has been created, Big Brothers Big Sisters staff is frequently in contact with the Bigs, Littles, parents, and site coordinators to assure the success and safety of the match. The trained professionals of Big Brothers Big Sisters provide guidance and support. Training and educational workshops are offered for the Bigs and parents.

Big Brothers Big Sisters Matches are invited to participate in group activities such as a winter holiday party, camping, or snow tubing. The agency encourages donations of tickets from individuals and organizations to sporting events, concerts, and other entertainment venues. Donations of activities such as picnics, bowling, snow tubing, or other outings for Community-Based Big and Littles or for the children who are waiting to be matched are greatly appreciated.
