Sponsor Community Change

Who We Are:

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Los Angeles makes meaningful, monitored matches between adult volunteers ('Bigs') and children ('Littles'), ages 6 through 18, in communities across Los Angeles County. We develop positive relationships that have a direct and lasting effect on the lives on young people.

Vision: All children achieve success in life.

Mission: Provide children facing adversity with strong and enduring, professionally supported one-to-one relationships that change their lives for the better, forever.

Accountability: By partnering with parents/guardians, volunteers and others in the community, we are accountable for each child in our program achieving:

  • Higher aspirations, greater confidence, and better relationships
  • Avoidance of risky behaviors
  • Educational success 

The BIG Bash is October 24!

Get ready for our biggest fundraising party of the year where we also get to thank our volunteers, sponsors and partners – and celebrate some outstanding community leaders. This year, we will honor William H. Ahmanson, President of the Ahmanson Foundation, Jennifer Salke, President of NBC Entertainment and The Hollywood Reporter!

How does BBBS work?

Professionally trained Big Brothers Big Sisters staff members work with our partners in the education and juvenile justice communities to find children facing adversity and assess how our programs can have the greatest impact.

Before we make a match, we do our homework. After someone expresses an interest in becoming a Big, they go through a background check and careful interview process. Then we match Bigs and Littles based on location, personalities, and preferences. We provide full support from the start so that matches can grow into lasting, impactful friendships. The entire matching process is made possible through donations - we can't do what we do best without them!
