Jewish Family Service Bigs & Littles promotes the development of youth in the community through quality mentoring relationships. The Bigs & Littles program has been serving the children and families of Cincinnati since 1910, and was a founding agency of Big Brothers Big Sisters of America.


We help children reach their potential by providing them with caring, adult role models who guide them in making positive choices about their future. Bigs are eligible to receive community service hours for their participation.


Whether you’re looking for a Big or looking to become one, it’s an experience that will bring big magic and big smiles into your life.

Donate now.  Support from individuals like you is essential to
providing mentors for at-risk children in our community.


Be a Big.  You have what it takes to be a positive role model to a child...just a few hours a month can make a difference for a lifetime. We currently are looking for potential Bigs for our school-based programs at Academy of World Languages (Tuesdays 2:30 - 3:30 pm) and Pleasant Ridge Montessori (Wednesdays 5-6:30 pm).  


Become a Little.  Give a child, age 7-17, the gift of friendship.  After all,
a caring supportive adult, in addition to a parent or guardian, can support a child on the path to a bright, positive future.
