Big Brothers Big Sisters of Erie, Niagara and the Southern Tier helps youth between the ages of 5-18 achieve success in school, helps them avoid risky behaviors and helps them improve their self-confidence by providing these key programs:


Community Based Mentoring

For as little as a few hours a month, Bigs and Littles meet in their community to share fun activities, stories and a little bit of themselves.
