Enroll a Child

As a parent, you recognize the potential of your child better than anyone.

​By enrolling your child with Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Lehigh Valley, you give them a chance to see their unlimited potential and develop into even more responsible, successful, well-rounded individuals. It’s a big step for your little one. But we assure you it’s the right one.

Could your son or daughter use a Big?

It all begins with the right role models, and Big Brothers Big Sisters is the place to start. For more than 45 years, we’ve been able to recruit, screen, match and support mentoring relationships that have changed the lives of thousands of young people across the Lehigh Valley — one Little at a time.

You’ll feel the impact as much as your child

A study for Big Brothers Big Sisters found that kids matched with a Big Brother or Big Sister:

  • are more confident
  • are more likely to steer clear of drugs and alcohol
  • do better in school
  • get along better with their family and friends
  • feel better about themselves

Parents wanted

You know what’s best for your child. So we’ll need your help from the start, providing information about your child’s strengths and needs, and ultimately approving the Big Brother or Big Sister match. But your role doesn’t end there.

Safety from the start

There is nothing more important to us than your child’s safety. Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Lehigh Valley conducts a thorough background check on every volunteer in our program, and every relationship is closely monitored and supported by a professionally-trained match coordinator.

Children between the ages of 7-15 years old are eligible to be matched with a Big.
