We are accountable for each child in our program achieving:

  • Higher aspirations, greater confidence, and better relationships
  • Avoidance of risky behaviors
  • Educational success

Our Programs Start Something

Here’s the proof.  National research has shown that positive relationships between Littles and their Bigs have a direct and measurable impact on children’s lives. Not only did this study, deemed foundational to the mentoring field, provide the evidence to support our mentoring model, but it also heightened the demand for Big Brothers and Big Sisters.  Learn more about mentoring a child in your community.
Changing perspectives. Changing lives.

Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Central Blue Ridge operates under the belief that inherent in every child is the ability to succeed and thrive in life. As the area’s leading provider of evidence-based mentoring, our agency makes meaningful, monitored matches between adult volunteer mentors (“Bigs”) and children (“Littles”), ages 6 through 16, in the Charlottesville and Albemarle communities.

Our vision: All children achieve success in life.

Mission: To provide children facing adversity with strong and enduring, professionally supported 1-to-1 relationships that change their lives for the better, forever.
