You make a BIG difference in the life of a child
When you become a BIG Sibling with The Jewish Board. Help a child become happier, more fulfilled, and better able to face the challenges of childhood or adolescence.


The BBBS (Big Brother Big Sister) Mentoring Program matches volunteers with children, ages 10-16 years old, who could benefit from an additional positive role model in their lives, positively impacting the well-being of the child. These children come from single parent families, special family circumstances, and/or are receiving services from The Jewish Board.


Volunteers must be 21 years or older, available to spend two afternoons a month with child and make a minimum of a year commitment. We create and support matches that are positive, safe, and well suited to your and the child''s needs.


Our Bigs come from all different backgrounds, and so do our Littles.


Our professional staff carefully screens Bigs and Littles to make the best match possible based on common interests, personalities and location, with matching periods occurring twice per year.


Your commitment has a powerful impact on the life of a child.

Description

Social distancing doesn't mean our clients need to be bored, or lonely. Virtual activities can be fun, wildly creative, and serve as a crucial substitute for in-person connections. We are open to your creative ideas, such as:

Creating a "project in a box" (art, cooking, or other activity)
Sending a video message of love and support to our clients
Filming a video lesson on your phone cooking, crafting, or anything else you want to share!
Leading (in real time) an activity via Zoom: exercise, music, or more!
Hosting a (virtual) scavenger hunt, contest, karaoke competition, or other fun game.
For donations of goods and volunteer activities, email us at connect@jbfcs.org to get matched with a program or to talk about other ways you can help. We are grateful for all creative ideas and help!

Additionally, you can choose to help support our clients and the services we continue to provide for all New Yorkers by donating online.
