Big Brothers Big Sisters Invites You To Think Big This January
Ever thought about becoming a mentor? Want to know more about Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Cayman Islands? Or know a young person that you think could benefit from our work?
We invite you to Think BIG this January!
As part of National Mentoring Month in the USA, BBBS CI has launched Think BIG; a campaign which aims to make a big impact on the Cayman community and to help recruit and match 100 mentors (Bigs) and mentees (littles).
We wanted to harness this important month to ask you to Think BIG this January and consider whether you could be a part of our mission.
Think BIG is a six week campaign based around ‘big’ events, ‘big’ messages and ‘big’ impacts. The aim is to raise awareness of the important work that we do within the Cayman Islands and to say a BIG thank you to all of our stakeholders, volunteers and supporters.
The Think BIG events will run throughout January and February 2021 and we have something for everyone. From fun days and karaoke, to big breakfasts and professional discussions. Think BIG aims to touch every element of our community and to get each and every one of you thinking BIG!
For further details on each event, see below.

January is National Mentoring Month in the USA and this focuses attention on the need for mentors, as well as how individuals, businesses, government agencies, schools, faith communities and non-profits can work together to increase the number of mentors to help ensure positive outcomes for young people. Mentors are an essential way of life for many Caymanian youth and they truly change the lives of their mentees forever. Many of the issues faced by our community’s young people have been heightened in 2020, due to COVID and the impact this had across the Islands. Therefore, the work of our mentors has never been more important.
