Big Brothers Big Sisters Lubbock

Who We Are

Who Are Bigs?
Big Brothers and Big Sisters are mature, stable adults who enjoy building friendships with a child. They are volunteers who are willing to spend quality time with a child and make a difference in their lives. Big volunteers come from all walks of life that can commit to 1-2 hours a week and are at least 18 years of age for our Site Based and Community Based Program.

Our Bigs and Littles spend time weekly doing activities that they both enjoy while forming a lifetime friendship.

How Can I Volunteer?
There are many ways you can Start Something today and become a mentor to a child in our program. We have two types of programs. Our Community Program allows you to spend time doing activities in the community with your Little. This can include going to the park, visiting a museum , cheering on our Red Raiders etc. Our second program is our Site Based Program which allows you to meet with your Little at one of our site locations after school, or for you to serve as a "Lunch Buddy" which allows you to have lunch with your Little once a week at their school. This is a great program for individuals who have an agreed lunch once a week to sit and talk with their Little. 

What We Do

Big Brothers Big Sisters is a nation-wide federation that has been the leader in one-to-one mentoring since 1904. There are currently over 450 agencies nationwide working together to invest in our future-the children we serve. Our local agency has been serving the Lubbock community since 1970.

Here at Big Brothers Big Sisters we know that today children are faced with many obstacles and challenges growing up in the world. Imagine going through all of that without having someone you could turn to or confide in. We know that a Big Brother or a Big Sister can fill that void and help a child. This is why we work so hard to achieve our mission.

Our Mission
The mission of Big Brothers Big Sisters is to help children reach their potential through professionally supported, one-to-one relationships with mentors that have a measurable impact on youth.
