About Big Brothers Big Sisters of Australia

Big Brothers Big Sisters Australia understands that every young person has a unique set of social and emotional needs. For many young people, these needs are often left unaddressed, hindering their ability to realise their full potential. We want to change this.

Our long-term, intensive, one-to-one mentoring programs are designed to respond to the individual needs of young people between 7 and 17 years, particularly those considered to be socially and emotionally isolated. By matching young people with positive adult role models, our mentoring programs provide a safe and supportive space for our next generation to foster a sense of belonging and self-worth. The strong connections built over a long term mentoring match enable young people to increase their sense of belonging, self worth and resilience. Volunteer mentors, or ‘Bigs’ work alongside their mentee, or ‘Little’, to equip them with the confidence and skills to engage meaningfully with their peers, family and the wider community. With greater self-belief, young people have the opportunity to unlock their potential, creating more fulfilled and connected communities.
