Let's Start Something Together.

When it comes to the future of our children and the well-being of our communities, we’re all in this together. So it should come as no surprise that we need the parents and guardians of Littles to be involved every step of the way, starting with the initial match.

Families as Partners

Not only will you provide information about your child’s strengths and needs, but you’ll also approve the selection of the Big Brother or Big Sister. Once the match is made, you remain closely involved in many ways, including:

  • Approving activities and outings for your child and their Big
  • Asking your child questions about those outings, and sharing what you learn with the appropriate Big Brothers Big Sisters staff
  • Reporting your child’s progress and milestones to the appropriate Big Brothers Big Sisters staff on a regular basis (Big Brothers Big Sisters of CYDC will contact you, but we welcome your feedback at any time)
  • Participating in training on child safety offered by Big Brothers Big Sisters staff, and communicating with your child about the training he or she receives.


At Big Brothers Big Sisters of CYDC, we believe parents and guardians are not just part of the process; they’re part of the success.


I want to become a Big Sponsor!

Become a Big Sponsor.
Witness the change you inspire.

Becoming a Big Sponsor means you will financially support one match between a Big and a Little for a period of three years. What do you get in return? You'll get direct feedback from your match letting you know exactly how your contribution is affecting the life of an underserved child in the Charleston community.

One Big. One Little. One Big Sponsor. Become a part of a relationship that will help empower and encourage a child. Watch the video to learn more.
