Lakeland - Since 1904, Big Brothers Big Sisters has operated under the belief that inherent in every child is incredible potential. As the nation’s largest donor- and volunteer-supported mentoring network, Big Brothers Big Sisters makes meaningful, monitored matches between adult volunteers (“Bigs”) and children (“Littles”), ages 5 through young adulthood in communities across the country. They develop positive relationships that have a direct and lasting effect on the lives of young people.

Their mission is to create and support one-to-one mentoring relationships that ignite the power and promise of youth.

On Jan. 1, 2015, two local Big Brothers Big Sisters agencies joined forces with a goal of pairing more children with caring adult mentors across Tampa Bay. The previous summer, the Board of Directors from Big Brothers Big Sisters of Pinellas County, Inc. and Big Brothers Big Sisters of Tampa Bay, Inc. unanimously voted to merge. Stephen Koch is CEO/president of the agency, which now includes seven counties and more than 90 experienced employees.

At Big Brothers Big Sisters of Tampa Bay, they provide both children and mentors the essential tools to develop lifelong, purposeful relationships. They serve more than 3,000 children in Hillsborough, Pinellas, Polk, Pasco, Citrus, Hernando and Sumter counties.
