Big Sister Association of Greater Boston
Big Sister Association of Greater Boston (Big Sister) is 100% invested in girls! Our mission is to ignite girls’ passion and power to succeed through positive mentoring relationships with women and enrichment programs that support girls’ healthy development. Ultimately, our vision is to create a mentor-rich community in which every girl has access to individual nurturing and guidance to help develop the confidence she needs to build new skills and broaden her vision of what’s possible in her future.
Founded in 1951, Big Sister has used research-based best practices that employ a gender-intentional lens, resulting in lasting positive outcomes for Little Sisters in academic achievement, interpersonal relationships, and the ability to make healthy decisions. Big Sister has developed a continuum of mentoring to enhance the positive impact of our signature one-to-one mentoring relationships. With programs like Workplace Mentoring, Big For A Day, Our Big Futures, and New Girls Network, Big Sister has created more opportunities to support Greater Boston’s girls and young women and to meet their unique developmental trajectories, ages 7 – 24.
Big Sister Association of Greater Boston is the only Big Brothers Big Sisters of America (BBBSA) agency out of 225 across the country to solely serve women and girls and was recently honored by the BBBSA as a Quality Award recipient for excellence in providing 1-to-1 youth mentoring programing.
