Big Brothers Big Sisters of Metro Atlanta (BBBSMA) believes in the unlimited potential of every young person. We believe that their ability to fulfill their potential is predicated on a strong support system from family, friends and mentors. Therefore Big Brothers Big Sisters of Metro Atlanta will operate with a spirit of excellence, urgency, innovation and integrity.

“We believe that every child can succeed. And our volunteer mentors work one-on-one with children to show them what success looks like. Over many years, I have seen that one-to-one mentoring is the most effective youth development program for young people facing adversity.”
