ABOUT US

It is our vision that all youth achieve their full potential.

Rooted in the Puget Sound region for more than 60 years, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Puget Sound creates meaningful 1-1 mentoring relationships between adult volunteer mentors and kids ages 6 through 18. We serve youth in King and Pierce counties through mentoring programs in communities, schools, and workplaces.

Our Mission: To create and support 1-to-1 mentoring relationships that ignite the power and promise of youth.

OUR IMPACT

Many of our kids face overwhelming challenges that often derail their futures. Youth in our programs who have been matched with a mentor for a year or more are doing better in school, have higher self-esteem and have stronger relationships with their family and friends.
