BIG BROTHERS/BIG SISTERS (MEMBER OF BOARD OF DIRECTORS)
Big Brothers Big Sisters of Bucks County is a private, non-profit organization affiliated with the national organization of Big Brothers Big Sisters of America. Originally Big Brothers and Big Sisters operated separately in Bucks County. Big Brothers was formed in 1963 by a group of concerned educators from the Centennial School District, and Aid for Girls was established in 1971 by the Doylestown Branch of the American Association of University Women. Aid for Girls became Big Sisters in 1974, and Big Sisters and Big Brothers merged to become one organization in 1987. With over fifty years of service to Bucks County youth, our primary goal has remained unchanged: to provide quality volunteer and professional services, primarily through mentoring and leadership development, to make a positive difference to children and enable them to achieve their highest potential as they grow to become responsible adults.
