Big Brothers Big Sisters of Middle TN
Big Brothers Big Sisters helps children overcome adversity and change their lives for the better. In 1999, Big Brothers Big Sisters of MiddleTN (BBBSMT) became a sponsor agency of RSVP as a result of negotiation on a national level between Big Brothers Big Sisters of America (BBBSA) and Senior Corp. As agreed at that time, BBBSMT focuses 100% of our volunteers toward mentoring. An estimated 150 volunteers will serve during the three-year grant cycle. They will engage in one-to-one mentoring; either in a school-based setting, where mentor and student will meet at a designated school (station) for one hour a week sharing recreational and educational activities, where educational needs are typically teacher-directed; or community-based, where mentors and children engage in community activities three or four times a month.
