In the News

January brings in resolutions and plans for a new year, but it also brings in the opportunity to look back and reflect on those who have made a lasting impact on our lives. In honor of National Mentoring Month, we want to thank our Bigs that are making a difference each day for kids across Metro Chicago. We hear of the impact on our Littles and their families, and are always reminded of how the seemingly little things add up to be a big deal: listening, sharing a story or a skill, taking your Little to try something new – or even just taking them outside.

We decided to ask our Littlest "experts" what it takes to be a great mentor and what kind of impact a mentor can have on someone's life. Throughout January, we will be sharing what we heard from our Littles across Metro Chicago over Facebook and Twitter. What we found - and what you'll see - is that it's truly the LITTLE things that make a BIG change.

The month will culminate in a celebration for our all our Bigs. If you're currently a Big Brother or Big Sister with BBBSMC, we invite you to come join us...
