Mentoring changes lives, and Big Brothers Big Sisters is America’s leader in one-to-one youth service. BBBS has over a century of proven success in creating positive friendships that benefit children, volunteers, families, neighborhoods, and communities. In the Fargo–Moorhead area, BBBS has been a program of The Village Family Service Center since 1973. School-based mentoring was added in 1998.
Our mission is to provide children facing adversity with strong and enduring, one-to-one relationships that change lives for the better, forever.
National research reveals that Littles are more likely to show positive behaviors in school and at home than children not matched with a Big. Our matches are effective because professional staff ensure that the relationships are safe and rewarding for everyone involved. Read a real BBBS success story from right here in Fargo.
