Our mission is to provide children facing adversity with strong and enduring, professionally supported, one-on-one relationships that change lives for better, forever.
For more than a century, Big Brothers Big Sisters worldwide has been helping change kids’ perspectives and giving them the opportunity to reach their potential. Globally we have more than a century’s worth of volunteers, donors, and advocates to thank.
In the early 1990s, under the leadership of Pastor Stanwyck Myles a group of concerned residents had been organized and were providing mentoring to children and teenagers.
In 1995, with the help of the Lions Club of Grand Cayman, Big Brothers Big Sisters was formally incorporated in the Cayman Islands.
Who do we serve…
