About Us

Yavapai Big Brothers Big Sisters is a donor and volunteer supported organization and is one of the nation’s leading Big Brothers Big Sisters agency in the number of children matched per capita. Founded in 1971, Yavapai Big Brothers Big Sisters has served nearly 11,000 children. In 2016, we have matched over 700 youths in one-to-one mentor relationships.

Our service area encompasses 19 communities and 65 schools throughout Yavapai County, Verde Valley and Sedona.

Yavapai Big Brothers Big Sisters operates under the belief that inherent in every child is the ability to succeed and thrive in life. Most children served by Yavapai Big Brothers Big Sisters are in other than parent, low-income families.

As the nation’s largest donor and volunteer supported mentoring network, Big Brothers Big Sisters makes meaningful, monitored matches between adult volunteers (“Bigs”) and children (“Littles”).

Research tells us that, compared to their peers, children their age, boys and girls matched with a Big Brother or Big Sister perform better in school and avoid violence and illegal activities, and have stronger relationships with their parents and others.
