Big Brothers Big Sisters of Bermuda

Welcome to BBBS of Bermuda!

BBBS Bermuda is a mentoring program dedicated to helping children and youth, primarily from single parent homes, realize their potential by facilitating the development of long-term one-to-one relationships.

How does it work? We match a child with an adult mentor – a positive role model and friend. This means that we match the specific strengths, interests, and abilities of the volunteer to the needs of the child. The volunteer, known as a “Big”, spends a minimum of three hours a week for at least one year with their “Little” by helping them build personal values such as self-esteem, self-respect and respect toward others.

Benefits to the “Big” – besides an incredibly rewarding experience, there is personal fulfillment; a sense of contributing or giving back to the community; the opportunity of sharing wisdom and experiences, and the joy of encouraging and inspiring young people.

Research has shown that youth matched with a Big Brother or Big Sister are 52% more likely to stay in school, 46% less likely to use drugs, and 32% less likely to engage in acts of violence. Youth also manifest increased self-confidence, a sense of increased self-worth, the ability to trust and a heightened sense of good judgment.

This goal-oriented practical approach to matching “Bigs” with “Littles” distinguishes the Big Brother Big Sister program from any other mentoring program internationally and has therefore enjoyed worldwide acclaim.
