The Building Big Awards serve to honor city leaders who share our passion for investing in children and the community, and individuals who have stepped up to mentor youth within our mentoring program. Big Brothers Big Sisters Independence Region is a donor-supported organization that enriches, encourages and empowers children to reach their highest potential through safe, one-to-one mentoring relationships. Volunteering as a Big Brother or Big Sister is about making a measurable difference in a child’s life by sharing new perspectives and experiences. Serving Chester, Delaware, Montgomery and Philadelphia counties in Pennsylvania and Burlington, Camden and Gloucester counties in New Jersey, nearly 4,000 children annually are more successful socially and academically because of the work of Big Brothers Big Sisters Independence Region.
