Big Brothers Big Sisters Invites You To Think Big
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!
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 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 early 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.

Why support Big Brothers Big Sisters?
At Big Brothers Big Sisters, we know the value of mentoring and that's why we're ‘Thinking BIG’ as we celebrate January as Mentoring Month, and beyond.
Our mission is to provide children facing adversity with strong and enduring, professionally supported, one-on-one relationships that change lives for better, forever.
Through our programmes, these children - known as Littles, are matched with a mentor - known as Bigs, that is best suited to show care and support to make their future brighter.
A brighter future for our children is a brighter future for Cayman.
