Big Brothers Big Sisters of Metropolitan Chicago provides children facing adversity with strong and enduring, professionally supported one-on-one relationships that change their lives for the better, forever, helping them succeed and thrive in life.

As Metro Chicago and Northwest Indiana’s largest donor and volunteer supported mentoring network, BBBSMC makes meaningful, monitored matches between adult volunteers (“Bigs”) and children (“Littles”), to develop positive relationships that have a direct and lasting effect on Metro Chicago youth and the communities in which they live.

Right now they are on a mission to wipeout their waitlist of 350 littles and serve 5000 kids and 5 years.

On October 23, stop by the Build Coffee patio to talk with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Metropolitan Chicago staff about their programs and how to get involved.
