The Big MOVE

For more than 40 years BBBS of Cumberland & Salem Counties has been providing one-to-one mentorship to our youth. We have grown from an idea at the Novick Family kitchen table to an organization that serves youth in a variety of programs. As the needs of our community change, we create new programs and services to meet those needs with one continuous thread to provide supported one-to-one mentorship. Our Bigs provide our Littles friendship, guidance, and fun experiences. Our staff provide training for each Big to best serve the needs of each Little and their families. Now we’re making a bold strategic move to a new building that’s centrally located in our service area.
