About Us

Try to envision an image from your childhood
Who is standing by your side? Mom? Dad? An older brother or sister?
It is almost certain that someone was there for us when we were kids. But for thousands of kids the reality of that image is not as certain. Without a caring and supportive adult figure they are many times left to cope with life on their own. This uncertainty results in feelings of loneliness, a low sense of confidence and self esteem and the potential exposure to negative influences in their search for an adult role model.


You can make a change in their childhood memories
We will match you with a child in need of your guidance and support- to play together, to talk or to just hang out.
Over time, your presence and the bond that will evolve between the two of you, will make a significant difference in the child’s sense of self worth and in their lives in general. It will also change your own life. A meaningful and memorable experience awaits you…


Two hours a week, a lifetime in itself.
We believe that volunteer work should coincide with your life and schedule in order to enable you to wholeheartedly give back without giving something up in the long run. That is why the encounters take place weekly for two hours each time. The long term accumulated benefits will surprise you…


We are with you all the way
All through your Journey volunteering with us, we will be there for you, for every question or request.
Our support includes ongoing one-on-one guidance as well as group workshops and assistance alongside recreational activities. Our community of Big Brothers and Big Sisters will allow you to make the journey meaningful for you, as well as your Little Brother or Sister.


A few official words about us
The Big Brother Big Sister organization has been around for over 100 years worldwide. Tens of-thousands of children were matched with Big Brothers and Sisters who have helped them make a change in their lives. Although we all follow the same principles, no two matches are the same. You and your Little Brother or Sister will create your own special connection in your way.
