Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Triangle
Big Brothers and Big Sisters (BBBS) of the Triangle matches low-income children, usually of single parent households, with a mentor who is over 18 years old in order to provide the children with a positive adult role model. Approximately 70 percent of mentors come from the UNC system.The Chapel Hill/Carrboro match coordinator is housed in the Campus Y at UNC-CH where the program is called “Big Buddies.” The match coordinator works to make a strong pairing from the beginning to ensure mentoring relationships will be long-lasting and effective. Volunteers commit from the outset to meet with their mentee for 8-10 hours per month for at least one year. BBBS of the Triangle also provides supplemental initiatives in the greater region: a health initiative to ensure that a healthy lifestyle as a natural part of match relationship, and an initiative for mentoring children of prisoners, which provides volunteers with additional training.
