Enroll a Child!

A Big Sister and Little Sister run an obstacle course

When thinking of a mentoring program, think Big Brothers Big Sisters. We are an organization that is changing the world. We have a history of helping youth right here in Fargo-Moorhead. The BBBS approach to recruiting, screening, matching and supporting our mentoring relationships has resulted in thousands of lasting friendships, and helped change the lives of young people across the country. Through this, we are defenders of potential.


Depending on the Big Brothers Big Sisters program you’re in, your child will meet with his or her volunteer mentor at the child’s school or in the community. In the BBBS Community-Based Program, your child will spend time with the mentor 2–3 times a month. In the School-Based Program, your child’s mentor will visit each week at the child’s school. Eligibility varies between the programs.

Parents are our partners

We’ll work closely with you because your input is important. Not only do you provide information about your child’s strengths and needs, but you approve the match of the Big Brother or Big Sister. Once the match is made, parents remain closely involved in several key ways.

Your child's safety is very important to us

We understand you wouldn’t trust your child with just anyone. That’s why you’ll be glad to know that every Big Brother and Big Sister goes through a thorough background check and every match is regularly reviewed by a professional Case Manager.
