Big Brothers Big Sisters of Danville Area provides one-to-one mentoring for children in Danville and Pittsylvania County, serving over 300 children annually.

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Danville Area is a true change agent, committed to providing an adult mentor for every child who needs or wants one. Mentoring is a proven strategy that changes how our children grow up in America by meeting critical needs of our region’s children and engaging all levels of community. We help children build the attitudes and behaviors needed to stay in school, succeed academically, make healthy choices, and create promising futures.

Since 1971, we have been the “gold standard” in child safety when it comes to matching children with adult volunteers. We support our matches for their duration by providing orientation and ongoing trainings, professional match support, and monthly activities. We make quality matches that stand the test of time, lasting an average of 5 years.

By matching children with adult mentors in one-to-one relationships, we transform the life of a child (a Little), transform the life of an adult (a Big) and together transform our schools, our neighborhoods and our communities for the better.
