Immigrants And Refugees


In 1902 the ladies of charity founded the nationwide girls mentoring movement by pioneering a program for vulnerable girls and families involved in the New York Children’s Court. Now serving both boys and girls, Bigs & Littles NYC Mentoring has been critical in uniting NYC communities and uplifting children and families across the city for over 119 years.
Bigs & Littles NYC Mentoring strives to transform the lives of children through one-to-one mentoring with carefully screened and trained caring volunteers, while strengthening entire families in hardship. Our one-to-one mentoring program and comprehensive family support services, including crisis counseling, holistic life skills development workshops, advocacy and referral assistance, empowers vulnerable New Yorkers, building hope and inspiring them to dream bigger and to plan for their future. We reach New York City children age 7 to 19 (providing services through completion of the critical first year of college) and their families.
