In 1974 an informal group of volunteers began serving as mentors to six disadvantaged youth on Cape Cod. Soon after, the group was formally organized as Big Brothers Big Sisters of Cape Cod & the Islands. The program was founded due to the large population of at-risk children- particularly those living in single-parent homes on Cape Cod and Martha’s Vineyard.

In 2006, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Cape Cod & the Islands merged with Boston-based Big Brothers Big Sisters of Eastern Massachusetts (formally of Massachusetts Bay) to improve organizational sustainability and increase capacity to serve children. Based in Hyannis, MA we are currently the only one-to-one youth mentoring agency on Cape Cod.
