Big Brothers Big Sisters of Southeast Michigan’s mission is to create and support one-to-one mentoring relationships that ignite the power and promise of youth.


// KEY SERVICES PROVIDED

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Metropolitan Detroit and Big Brothers Big Sisters of Washtenaw County officially merged as Big Brothers Big Sisters of Southeast Michigan (BBBSSEM) on Aug. 1. The new organization is excited to build on the success of both predecessors and create even stronger mentoring programs for the future. Through a combined effort, BBBSSEM will grow its commitment to, belief in, and affirmation of justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion for its workforce, volunteers, and the families it serves. More resources will provide more impact for its combined service area, uniting efforts in reaching its north star goal of supporting youth by providing one-to-one matches for more than 1,500 children in Wayne, Washtenaw, Oakland, and Macomb counties. BBBSSEM empowers our region’s “Littles” to achieve their potential!
