About the Programme
Big Brothers Big Sisters Trinidad and Tobago (BBBSTT) enables life changing mentoring relationships which ignite the power and potential of youth.
An affiliate of Big Brothers Big Sisters International (BBBSI), BBBSTT facilitates and supports the one-to-one mentorship relationship of adult volunteer mentors called “Bigs” and children or adolescent mentees called “Littles”. These relationships enable youth participants to interact in a positive way with adults outside of their family or regular network.
The Big Brothers Big Sisters (BBBS) programme is based on the idea that a healthy relationship with a caring adult can provide youth with a positive foundation that enables them to live a healthy and productive life: a commitment to learning, a positive sense of self and the future, positive values such as caring, social justice, honesty and responsibility, and social competences of making friends, planning and making decisions, and resisting negative behaviours.
The BBBS mentoring programme started in the United States of America in 1904. Over the last century BBBS has been providing support and positive encouragement to youth who need a listening ear, a kind heart, and the dedication of adults who believe in their dreams.
