Big Brothers Big Sisters of Mid-Florida (BBBS)

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Mid-Florida (BBBS) was established in 1977 and has served thousands of children within Alachua, Bradford, Columbia, Gilchrist, Levy, and Marion counties. Our vision is to provide successful mentoring relationships for children who need and want them and to contribute to education and stronger communities for all. Our mission is to help children reach their potential through professionally supported, one-to-one relationships.

With the help of Florida Health Insurance, staff and volunteers are proud to have had two “National Big Brother of the Year” winners (1984 & 2004), two “State Big Sister of the Year” winners (2006 & 2008), and two Arby’s scholarship winners (1999) for $20,000 and $1,000.
