Big Friends is a mentor program that supports children and young people who need extra attention, and who grow up in low-income families. We are committed to connecting children between the ages of 6 and 18 with carefully selected and well-trained volunteers. Our mission is to make a world of difference in the life of every child through a special friendship.

Our approach: friendship with Impact

Big Friends believes in the power of friendship. We make compatible matches between children and adult volunteers, our ‘Big Friends’, who build bridges across age, culture and social background. These matches are carefully screened and supervised, where we focus on providing a stable and positive influence in the lives of young people. Together they undertake activities, share experiences while learning from each other. Because where worlds meet, horizons are broadened. Our ‘Big Friends’ offer children the attention they need, help them become more self-reliant and self-confident, discover talents and function better in their daily lives.
