Every year more than a thousand young people across Connecticut benefit from the presence of a Big Brother or Big Sister in their lives who sees, recognizes, and empowers their potential.


We create and support one-to-one mentoring relationships that ignite the power and promise of youth.


At Big Brothers Big Sisters of Connecticut, we partner with volunteers, parents, and families to create one-to-one mentoring relationships that defend, inspire, and empower the potential of Connecticut youth. Learn more about how you can help us create more life-changing relationships through our youth mentoring opportunities.

Black History Month

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Connecticut is marking Black History Month by honoring Black Americans’ accomplishments throughout our nation’s history. We’re also celebrating the partnership of Connecticut’s Black leaders, community partners, financial contributors, volunteers, mentees and parents and guardians in our mission of matching great children with caring mentors. If you’ve been thinking about getting involved with our work – by enrolling a child, volunteering to be a mentor or helping in other ways – Now’s a great time for you to make history too!
