Big Brothers Big Sisters of St. Johns County has served our community since 1994. We operate under the belief that inherent in every child is incredible potential. As part of the nation's largest donor- and volunteer-supported mentoring network, BBBS of St. Johns County makes meaningful, monitored matches between adult volunteers ("Bigs") and children ("Littles"). We develop positive relationships and essential connections that have a direct and lasting effect on the lives of young people in our community.
There are two ways that we serve children: through our community-based program that matches adults with children ages 6-12, who spend time out in the world, and through our site-based program that matches volunteers with children ages 6-12, who spend time playing and working on improving academics at local elementary schools. We are growing and expanding our services. Visit our website periodically to learn about new opportunities to Start Something BIG!
An important component of Big Brothers Big Sisters is professional match support services. Our Match Support Specialists personally walk volunteers through the process from inquiry to enrollment and throughout the life of a match. We provide our Bigs with professional training, 24-hour emergency support and volunteer recognition.
