Wisdom of Life

Mission, Vision & Values


To foster the development of children in reaching their highest potential as responsible and caring adults. We do this by providing quality volunteer mentoring relationships with a supportive adult, and educational programs which are supervised by our professional staff.


Guided by our mission and core values, Big   Brothers Big Sisters of Northeast Ohio will be the premier mentoring organization for children. We will establish high standards and programs to meet the constantly changing needs of children. We will accomplish our goals throughout the organization and will be the model against which other organizations gauge their success. We will work together to create a legacy of services to children and, in so doing, recognize and celebrate the contributions of clientele, staff, volunteers, Board members, donors and other   funders.


For Big Brothers Big Sisters of Northeast Ohio, children have intrinsic value. Through recognition of their potential and improvement of their lives, we build a responsible, caring future generation.
