About This Program
Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Lowell matches youth, ages 7-15 with caring, adult mentors to serve as another trusted adult and role model in the child’s life. Our vision is that all children achieve success in life. We strive to accomplish this by providing children facing adversity with strong, enduring, and professionally supported 1-to-1 relationships that change their lives for the better, forever.
Big Brothers Big Sisters operates two mentoring program styles: community-based and site-based. In the community-based program, volunteer Big Brothers and Big Sisters spend quality 1:1 time with a child out in the community, serving as another positive adult in the child’s life, a good friend, and good role model. Activities shared range from exploring a common interest, to taking a walk to baking cookies at home. In the site-based program, mentors meet with their Little Brother or Sister under staff supervision at a designated place and time weekly. When the site-based program takes place at a school, the time is split between academic and social activities. Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Lowell has two site-based programs at the Stoklosa Middle School in Lowell, MA, and the Dutile Elementary School in Billerica, MA.
Who are Big Brothers and Big Sisters? They are every day citizens who want to have fun and make a difference in the life of a child. To get involved as a volunteer mentor, Big Brothers Big Sisters’ staff will work with you to make the process as easy as possible. New volunteers must be over the age of 18, and be able to make a one year time commitment to the program, and complete an intake which includes an application, interview, training and background check. To learn more about volunteering or receive an application, contact firstname.lastname@example.org or download the application here Big Brother Big Sister Volunteer Application.
To get a child enrolled for a Big Brother or Big Sister, the child must be between the ages of 7-14 and reside in one of the 17 communities. Any one can make a referral to the program, but the parent/ guardian needs to be in agreement to the program, and the youth must want a Big Brother or Big Sister. Program staff must complete the enrollment process to determine youth suitability, which includes meeting with the parent and child. For a child application, please contact the listed staff members, Big Brother Big Sister Child Application.
