Friend 2 Friend Volunteer (Adult/Adult)

Jewish Big Brothers Big Sisters (JBBBS)

Jewish Big Brothers Big Sisters (JBBBS)

The Friend 2 Friend (F2F) program through Jewish Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Boston (JBBBS) provides adults with mild to moderate disabilities the opportunity to make new friends, socialize, stay active and be connected to the community. F2F programs support one-to-one friendships for qualifying adults.


Participants are ages 18+ with mild to moderate disabilities including but not limited to developmental disabilities, learning disabilities, mild mental illness, autism spectrum disorders, and traumatic brain injury. They possess basic conversational and independent living skills. Participants, both Jewish and from other faiths and backgrounds, are from a variety of different places and life experiences. 


F2F volunteers commit to meeting with their Friend for a couple of hours, once a month, for at least one year. Friend pairs typically spend time together sharing mutual interests and activities. Like JBBBS’s participants, volunteers are from all demographic groups.
