BIG BROTHERS BIG SISTERS OF OCEAN COUNTY (BBBSOC) is a life-changing preventive program. We currently provide community, school and site based programs to over 600 children, aged 5 thru 17, in Ocean County.
Our mission is to provide children facing adversity with strong and enduring, professionally supported one-to-one relationships that change their lives for the better, forever.
We partner with parent/guardians, volunteers and others in the community and hold ourselves accountable for each child in our program achieving:
•Higher aspirations, greater confidence, and better relationships
•Avoidance of risky behaviors
For those children “Littles” that participate in the program the success rate is significant.
We are proud to say that All of the children that we have served since our inception in 1997 have graduated high school and gone on to college or vocational training.
Over 115 children are on a waiting list so Big Brothers, Big Sisters volunteers are needed.
Funding for our services comes from grants, fund raising events and donations from our community. 100% of your donation stays here in Ocean County.
