Big Brothers Big Sisters of NH

Big Brothers Big Sisters of New Hampshire is a youth mentoring organization, helping to match children in NH with mentors and changing lives – one friendship at a time. Mentoring gives youth the inspiration and confidence needed to achieve their dreams, provides parents with a network of support, and offers volunteers the opportunity to make a big difference in someone else’s life, just by having fun!

The community-based program is our “traditional” mentoring program, where Bigs and Littles are matched in a one-to-one friendship based on gender, interests, personalities, and geographic locations. Volunteers are carefully screened and trained to create a positive impact by sharing their friendship, guidance, and support. Pairs meet at least twice per month for a couple hours to spend quality one-on-one time together and form meaningful memories just by hanging out. Mentors take the time to listen, encourage, and model positive behavior while doing everyday activities.

Youth Requirements:

  • Accepting applications for ages 6-17
  • Must commit to at least one year in the program
