Big Brothers Big Sisters

About Us

Being a Big Brother or Big Sister begins by starting a new friendship and is all about having fun with a friend.  Tufts students visit their “Little” at a local elementary school for 40 minutes to an hour only one day a week.  With just a one-year commitment Big Brothers and Big Sisters change their Littles’ lives for the better, forever so it’s rewarding and easy to see that you’re making a real difference.

Tufts Big Brothers Big Sisters is a collaboration between LCS, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Massachusetts Bay and the Big Sisters Association of Greater Boston meaning you get to work with professional staff who match you with the best Little for you based on your experiences, personality and preferences.  Littles are great kids who could use the extra support of a caring adult friend, role model and mentor.  Also, you won’t be alone as a Big Brother or Big Sister–our staff are smart, experienced and there to help you all along the way and there are dozens of other Bigs on campus as well.
