ABOUT US

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Metropolitan Detroit (BBBSMD) was formed in 1974 with the merger of five local Big Brother Big Sister organizations from throughout metro Detroit, with a focus on Wayne, Oakland and Macomb counties.  We are the largest one-to-one evidence-based mentoring organization in Southeast Michigan serving nearly 1,000 youth annually with site- and community-based mentoring programs.  All of our programming is rooted in evidence-based practices, further differentiating BBBSMD from other mentoring programs. Our mentoring model is certified by multiple federal government departments as an “Effective” evidence-based model in realizing positive outcomes for youth.
