These are the ‘Big Brothers Big Sisters Austria’ (BBBS)
Since 2012, BBBS has been supporting people on their way to a self-determined and successful future. The association is part of the world's largest mentoring network ‘Big Brothers Big Sisters International’ and works on the basis of international quality standards.
As an independent and non-profit organisation, BBBS works for more equal opportunities in Austria.
What BBBS does
The core of BBBS's work is one-to-one mentoring. An adult (mentor) is paired with a child, young person or parent (mentee). The resulting 'tandems' spend time together regularly, building a trusting relationship. The BBBS psychosocial expert team supports and accompanies the tandems in this process. In this way, BBBS facilitates moments that change lives - for mentees, mentors and future generations.
This is what BBBS cares about
The vision of BBBS is: Every person has the right to personal development and the chance to unfold their own potential. Through one-to-one mentoring, BBBS wants to provide people in challenging life situations with a confidant who facilitates positive relationship experiences and opens up new perspectives - on the way to a successful and self-determined life.
