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.
