Big Brothers Big Sisters is America’s leader in one-to-one youth service, with over a century of proven success in creating positive friendships that benefit children, volunteers, families, neighborhoods, and communities. In the Fargo–Moorhead area, BBBS has been a program of The Village Family Service Center since 1973. School based mentoring was added in 1998.
National research reveals that Littles are more likely to show positive behaviors in school and at home than children not matched with a Big. Our matches are effective because professional staff ensure that the relationships are safe and rewarding for everyone involved. Read about a real BBBS success story from right here in Fargo.
