Big Brothers Big Sisters Columbia Northwest is a private non-profit social change organization affiliated with Big Brothers Big Sisters of America. Funded by local investments only, BBBS helps children realize their full potential and build their futures by providing dedicated one-to-one mentors to each child who comes through our door.
Our goal is to use the power of life changing mentoring relationships to help youth improve their academic achievement, empower them to make positive life choices, graduate from high school, have higher aspirations, greater confidence, and positive & supportive relationships.
