Big Brothers Big Sisters


Big Brothers Big Sisters has the bold belief that one positive relationship for every child can transform a community.  Through 117 years of proven processes, Big Brothers Big Sisters is considered the gold standard of mentoring. 2022 marks our 95th year of service to children across Greater Dallas, and we couldn’t be more proud to celebrate it with you. The humble beginnings of the “Dallas Big Brothers Club” were founded by Ms. Jessie A. White, a young probation officer of the Dallas Juvenile Court in 1926. She was distraught at the futures that awaited the boys filing through the court system.


“When a child is brought to us there are only two things to do with him,” White said. “We can send him to the reform school or we can send him back to the same conditions from which he came. What these boys need is a friend that the boy can count on, who can give him the feeling that someone is especially interested in him.”


Upon this realization, Ms. White took a step, which would forever change the futures of Texas children. Ms. White visited civic organizations, churches and clubs to recruit mentors and generate support for the Big Brother movement, which began in New York City 23 years earlier. Through the support of Judge F.H. Alexander and the Dallas Rotary Club Boys Committee, the Dallas Big Brothers Club was ultimately born on February 24, 1927. Ever since then, we have been defending the potential of youth across Greater Dallas.


As we celebrate 95 years of service to youth, we ask you to consider joining us as a Defender of Potential.
