Real Men Mentor

Big Brothers Big Sisters and 100 Men of Lorain County, are working together to give boys in Lorain County every opportunity to succeed.


With over 250 youth currently being served in one-to-one mentoring relationships throughout Lorain County, there still remains a significant need, particularly when it comes to adult males stepping forward in a mentoring role for boys. Adult males often feel uncertain of their ability to mentor a youth, what to do during their time with a child, and how they could fit mentoring into their schedule. However, Big Brothers Big Sisters takes care of these concerns by making volunteering flexible. It only takes a few hours a couple times a month to make a Big difference.

You have a big opportunity in front of you—to not only impact a child’s life today, but to transform their potential for tomorrow. We’re always looking for people eager to positively impact a child and improve their community at the same time. And, right now is no different. Big Brothers are in high demand. So, Start Something.

Why do we need Big Brothers?

More than 70% of our children waiting for a Big are boys, but only 3 out of every 10 inquiries to volunteer come from men. Research shows that having the positive influence of a Big Brother makes a real difference in a boy's life. So join the hundreds of volunteers that give a young person someone to look up to. And learn why so many are now saying, “I get back so much more than I give.”
