Making a positive impact on the lives of children
For one hundred years, BBBS SEPA has made a positive impact on children and communities in Chester, Montgomery, Delaware and Philadelphia Counties by connecting caring adult volunteers with at-risk children in professionally supported one-to-one mentoring relationships.

Our vision is that all children achieve success in life.

Our mission is to provide children facing adversity with strong and enduring, professionally supported one-to-one mentoring relationships that change their lives for the better, forever.

By partnering with parents/guardians, volunteers and others in the community we are accountable for each child in our program achieving:

  • Higher aspirations, greater confidence, and better relationships
  • Avoidance of risky behaviors
  • Educational success
