Enroll a Girl
Igniting Girls' Passion & Power to Succeed
We enroll girls, trans, gender-nonconforming, and nonbinary youth from age 7 – 15 in our programs. Big Sister Boston accepts referrals from parents, guardians, grandparents, teachers, guidance counselors, other family members, and service providers. Enrollment in our programs requires approval by a Little Sister’s parent(s) or legal guardian. If you know a girl, trans, or nonbinary youth who wants to become a Little Sister, call 617.236.8077 or complete the online application form on this page to enroll now.
To make the best possible match, the enrollment process includes interviews with the Little Sister and her parent or legal guardian. During the interview our team will learn more about the Little Sister’s personality and interests as well as any preferences they may have for the match.
We are currently making Big and Little Sister matches virtually as a safety measure. All interviews during the enrollment process and visits with your Big Sister will take place online until we have determined that you can safely meet in person. Our Big Sisters will be equipped with tools and support to help them engage with their Little Sisters in a virtual environment.
Big Sister Association of Greater Boston provides mentors to girls in our service area. To refer a boy in this service area, please contact Big Brothers Big Sisters of Eastern Mass or Jewish Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Boston. Some Littles have transitioned genders while participating in our program and they are always welcome to continue in our program if they wish.

How It Works
Who Can Be A Little Sister?
A Little Sister can be any child between the ages of 7 – 15 who could benefit from the care, support, and attention of a Big Sister. Little Sisters must live in our service area (enter your Zip Code in the box above to see if we serve your town), have the desire to participate in the program, and have approval to participate from their parent or legal guardian.
