In the six years that Penn students have been part of the Big Brothers Big Sisters program, they have made it the largest in the Southeastern Pennsylvania region, providing more volunteers than any other single college, university or corporation in the Philadelphia area.

On Oct. 20, the University held a ceremony to commemorate the 1,500 matches that have been made between “Bigs” (Penn students) and “Littles” (students from 11 area schools and community centers).
