Big Brothers Big Sisters (BBBS) of Family Services of Westchester (FSW) is a youth mentoring organization. Our vision is that all children achieve their full potential in school and in life. Our mission is to provide children facing adversity with strong and enduring professionally supported one-to-one relationships that change their lives for the better, forever. We operate under a Big/Little model, matching adult volunteers (our “Bigs”) with children (our “Littles”). These meaningful and enduring relationships have proven to positively change our Littles’ lives.
Started over 100 years ago in New York City, Big Brothers Big Sisters is the oldest and largest youth mentoring program in the United States, matching caring volunteers with children in one-to-one mentoring relationships. There are nearly 400 Big Brothers Big Sisters agencies across the country and more than 275,000 volunteer Bigs.
In 1958, Family Services of Westchester established a Westchester affiliate of Big Brothers Big Sisters. Currently, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Family Services of Westchester serves hundreds of children aged 7-17 throughout Westchester County.
