Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Sacramento, Inc.,
Youth Development

Big Brother Big Sisters, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, was founded in 1904.  Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Sacramento (BBBS), an affiliate of the national organization, was established in 1963 to serve the needs of children, ages 7 – 18, in the Sacramento region, including, Sacramento, Yolo, South Placer, and San Joaquin Counties.  Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Sacramento serves approximately 500 ethnically and economically diverse children annually.  The majority of children and youth served are from single-parent homes and approximately 93% of the children currently live at or below poverty level.  Most are boys (76%) who may have no caring and positive male adult in their lives.  Big Brothers and Big Sisters programs offer one-to-one, long-term mentoring programs in community-based settings.
