Big Brothers Big Sisters in Need of Male Mentors

March 24, 2015

BBBSAs the largest one-to-one mentoring organizations in the Southeast, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Metro Atlanta (BBBSMA) currently serves over 3,390 youth in one-to-one relationships. Our service to our community extends beyond the city of Atlanta to the 12-county metropolitan area surrounding the city:  Butts, Cherokee, Clayton, Cobb, DeKalb, Douglas, Fayette, Fulton, Gwinnett, Henry, Paulding and Rockdale. Currently we have a large waiting list of boys in the Cobb County community that need male mentors.

Being a Big Brother is one of the most rewarding things you will ever do. As a Big Brother, you get to be a kid again for an hour a week while you give a kid the invaluable gift of your friendship. Of the hundreds of boys waiting for a Big Brother right now, there’s one wanting to play video games, shoot hoops, or just hang out with someone just like you!

Why do we need Big Brothers?

More than 70% of our children who are waiting for a Big are boys, but only three out of every 10 inquiries to volunteer come from men.  Research shows that having the positive influence of a Big Brother makes a real difference in the life of a boy.  So join the millions of volunteers who give a young person someone to look up to and learn why so many are now saying, “I get back so much more than I give.”

If you are male of know of other males that may be interested in becoming a mentor to a child in his community please call us at 404-601-7000 or visit us on the web www.bbbsatl.org.
