mentoring with aloha
Big Brothers Big Sisters Hawai'i creates life-changing friendships on Hawai'i Island, Kaua'i, Maui, and O'ahu. We do this by matching keiki ages 6-18 ("Littles") in one-to-one friendships with mentors ("Bigs"). Each "match" is supported by a Match Coach who is there to answer questions, provide fun activities, and guide kids, mentors, and parents on this life-changing journey. This daily professional support is what sets our organization apart from any other mentoring organization - and, most importantly, makes our programs the most effective in the short- and long-term.
Research shows that youth who have a positive adult influence in their life are better able to reach their fullest potential. Our programs help parents build a network of support for their family while offering volunteers the opportunity to make a big difference in someone else's life, simply by having fun!
We invite you to help us create positive change within our island communities through the power of one-to-one mentoring.
