Big Brothers Bigs Sisters of Rhode Island is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization committed to making a difference in the lives of children in our communities by providing children in our communities with professionally trained and supported adult mentors. With the help of our volunteer mentors, BBBSRI helps children understand and realize their full potential as they grow to be all they can be. With the help and support of their "Bigs", children ("Littles") are encouraged to overcome adversity, proudly recognize their strengths, and work to become better individuals every day of their lives.
“With realization of one’s own potential and self-confidence in one’s ability, one can build a better world.”
- Dalai Lama
The type of connections we look to create have the potential to be transformative both for the Littles as well as for the Bigs. The key to our success relies on the effectiveness of our matches. That is why we at Big Brothers Big Sisters of Rhode Island are committed to providing every child in our program the best 1-on-1 mentoring match possible. Our top priority is always the well being of our Littles. That is why throughout the life of a match we provide professional support services for the Little, their parents/guardians, and their Big. By providing these services we ensure that every match meets our stringent standards.
Every child has an incredible amount of potential, and we are committed to giving our volunteer mentors the tools and support necessary to defend it.
