Big Brothers Big Sisters of Middle Tennessee works to provide youth facing adversity with the guidance they need to help them succeed by matching them with an adult mentor. The organization creates professionally supported mentoring programs to develop positive relationships between a Big and Little that have a lasting impact on a young person’s life.
You can be the difference. All youth have potential, they just need someone to defend it. One-to-one mentoring provides young people with the support and opportunities they need to help build successful futures. Littles dream big, and BBBS mentors empower them to reach their fullest potential.
There are a lot of Littles who want a positive role model in their life. More mentors are needed to ignite the power and promise of our youth. As a Big, you’ll change a young person’s life, but they’ll also change yours. Reach out to learn more about becoming a mentor today! https://mentorakid.org/become-a-big/>>

End Slavery Tennessee (ESTN) works tirelessly to advocate for human trafficking victims, educate communities across the state and the region, and inform legislators about the critical need to enact tougher laws so that traffickers are duly prosecuted. These important efforts have resulted in vigorous laws that make Tennessee one of the toughest states in prosecuting human trafficking violations. It also resulted in ESTN’s designation by the Governor’s Public Safety Subcabinet as the regional point of contact for 41 counties in Middle Tennessee for victim referrals.
