General

  • Mission:
  • The Big Brothers Big Sisters mission is to help children reach their potential through professionally supported, one-to-one relationships with mentors that have a measurable impact on youth. BBBS of SECT has been committed to developing one-to-one mentoring relationships between volunteers and children who come from difficult circumstances. Youth begin the program between the ages of 5 and 14 years old and are usually referred by parents, teachers, counselors, or support agencies. The variety of programs offered by BBBS of SECT include one-to-one friendships, couples mentoring, school based mentoring, college and high school mentoring programs. We also have specific programs for Children of Incarcerated Parents, Native American Menoring, and Mentoring for Military Children.

  • History:
  • Big Brothers Big Sisters is the oldest, largest and most effective youth mentoring organization in the United States. Since 1904 Big Brothers Big Sisters of America has been dedicated to serving the needs of low income disadvantaged children and youth with carefully screened, trained and supported volunteer mentors. A century of experience has attracted numerous recognitions from our nation’s presidents, federal agencies, and most importantly, touched the lives of hundreds of thousands of adult men and women who were once a “Little Brother” or a “Little Sister”. Since its inception in 1965, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Southeastern Connecticut has become the premier mentoring organization in New London County, now serving over 700 children and families within our community.
