Celebrating Big Brothers Big Sisters
Creating smiles that last a lifetime
Big Brothers Big Sisters became a Community Partner in 1976 to create and support mentoring relationships that ignite the potential of youth in the Lubbock area. The organization’s programs include a community-based and a school-based program to help children ages 6 to 15 years old reach their full potential. Locally, 84% of children enrolled in the program improved or maintained educational expectations.
A Big and Little can build a friendship that lasts a lifetime. When a child has a mentor, they are more likely to have higher aspirations, do better in school, and gain confidence.
A history of mentorships
Big Brothers Big Sisters has been the leader in one-to-one mentorship nationwide for more than 100 years. The organization’s local agency has been serving the Lubbock community since 1970, where it was originally known as Big Brothers.
In 1977, the agency added Big Sisters to the program and increased their mentoring services to better serve children with meaningful and life-changing experiences.

In 2020, Big Brothers Big Sisters matched 282 children to mentors that can help aspire them. The organization has shown a measurable impact on the children’s lives.
