Welcome to the Bigs page!  If you are currently a Big, thanks for volunteering with us. You are at the heart and soul of our success, changing the lives of the children we serve, for the better, forever.

 We hope this page will be helpful for you.  Here you’ll find resources, events, activities and continuing education to help you have a successful match with your Little.  Know that your program manager is always available to you to answer any questions you might have, but this page can help you plan an outing with your Little, find answers to some basic questions or, most importantly, help give you continuing education so you can be the best mentor to your mentee.

Match Outings

Every month, BBBS of NYC is committed to providing at least one free of charge group outing, designed to help you work towards your Little's SMART goals and connect with other matches in our program. Supported directly by our program managers, these outings provide an opportunity to connect directly the with BBBS community in a fun and productive way.

Upcoming Outings:


Come learn about Japanese culture through a series of activities including origami, caligraphy, a chop stick challenge, a performance by traditional Japanese drummers and more! Lunch will be provided.
