Could your child use a Big Brother or Sister?
Big Brothers Big Sisters pairs children ages 6-16 with caring, adult mentors. Currently, we serve children in Travis, Williamson and Hays counties.
For more than 45 years, we’ve been providing mentoring relationships that have changed the lives of hundreds of thousands of young people — one Little at a time.
A study for Big Brothers Big Sisters found that kids matched with a Big Brother or Big Sister:
- are more confident
- are more likely to steer clear of drugs and alcohol
- do better in school
- get along better with their family and friends
- avoid early parenting
- feel better about themselves1

Parents as partners.
You know what’s best for your child. So we’ll need your help from the start, providing information about your child’s strengths and needs, and ultimately approving your child's Big Brother or Big Sister match. But your role doesn’t end there.
