It takes little to be big

Big Brothers Big is the nation’s oldest, largest, and most impactful mentoring program. Working within the communities of Northeast Florida for over a century, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Northeast Florida (BBBSNEFL) has effectively changed the lives of thousands through impactful mentoring programs and meaningful relationships. We serve any youth who needs or wants a mentor and seek to create and support one-to-one mentoring relationships that ignite the power and promise of youth.

One in three young people will reach adulthood without ever having someone they can identify as a Mentor in their life. BBBSNEFL is working to close the mentoring gap affecting Northeast Florida’s youth. Mentorship might sound huge, but guess what? It Takes Little to be BIG. It’s 30 minutes over a cup of coffee, it’s 20 minutes of gaming, best 2 out of 3, it’s the time it takes to enjoy a slice or two of pizza. The power of mentorship lies in these little moments that have the potential to inspire and shape us. Be Big. Become a volunteer, a mentor, a champion for youth. Visit

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Northeast Florida host its annual Margarita J’ville event Friday, Nov. 3rd at Mavi Waterfront Bar & Grill at 6:30 pm.
