Success Stories

One of the most rewarding experiences I've had...

I was a big brother with Big Brothers and Big Sisters of the Bay Area and it was one of the most rewarding experiences I've had. The organization is very professional and goes the extra mile to ensure that there is a good match. It's incredibly rare to volunteer for a cause that is so real and impactful. I highly recommend Big Brothers and Big Sisters if you want to truly experience making a difference.

I feel like the luckiest person in the world

I've been a Big for more than 8 years now and I feel like the luckiest person in the world to have my Little! She's amazing and I'm enormously proud of her. My match specialist has been a great gift throughout, checking in, providing resources when needed, and an informed, caring ear when I needed feedback. Great organization - I can't say enough good things about them.

A truly rewarding experience...

I've been involved with BBBS for more than a decade and have always been impressed with organization and how much they care about their mission and supporting mentoring in the Bay Area. A truly rewarding experience in every aspect of their work.

It's been an amazing experience

I've been a Big Brother for nearly eight years; it's been an amazing experience. The 1-to-1 match allows you to see impact that you can have on a young person's life firsthand - its compelling, poignant and inspirational. It is an experience not to be missed. The organization here in the Bay Area is terrific; professional, consistent and supportive. As with most tech. professionals in the Bay, my time is short and the time spent with my little has been worth every second.
