Big Hearts, Big Impact

CEO Brenda Frachiseur of the Northern Sierra Chapter Enlightens Us

Since 1977, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Northern Sierra has operated under the belief that inherent in every child is the ability to succeed and thrive in life. Serving about 250 children annually in Northern Sierra counties, it offers exclusive one-on-one mentoring, outcome-based tracking, and ongoing relationship support. 

What Does It Take To Be A “Big”?

Anyone, from high schoolers to retirees, can become a Big Brother or Big Sister. "Bigs" are diverse individuals who want to be positive role models, committing as little as an hour every other week to a child.  Our professional staff trains all volunteers and provides ongoing support for each relationship.  

How Else Can One Help?

Being a "Big" is not for everyone. You can also attend, volunteer, or sponsor our events or provide gifts for our auctions.

How Does BBBS Affect El Dorado Hills Specifically?

Although it is considered a primarily affluent area, more than half of the children we serve live in El Dorado Hills.  Currently, there are 57 children on the waitlist (several right here in EDH).
