The Big Siblings one-on-one mentoring program through Big Brother Big Sister of Massachusetts Bay is offered to children in first through fifth grade. Children are matched with a Brandeis student who shares common activities and quality time together ranging from playing sports, doing homework, or attending special events at Brandeis for a mutually decided time of one hour a week. This program has expanded to include a partnership with Sibling Connections, an organization that seeks to reunite biological siblings separated by the foster care system.

Mission Statement

Big Siblings aims to promote positive youth development, connection, and community building through 1:1 mentorship.
