Bridging Generations to Create Meaningful Connections

Having someone to talk to makes all the difference.

More than
of Americans report feeling lonely. Let's change that.

Meet Big & Mini

A community working together to spread wisdom, end social isolation, and make the world a little better— one generation-bridging connection at a time.

Leveraging technology to help you share stories, laugh, and learn

Through phone or video call conversations, an inspiring connection can be made in minutes.

A Big's Life

You have lived a life that cannot be taught in a classroom. You have a unique story and there's a young person out there that can benefit from it.

Mini, But Not Minor

You are young and you want to do this thing called life with your eyes wide open: To possibilities. To perspectives. To potential. You want to connect with someone who has lived life firsthand.

What our Bigs and Minis are saying

"I love how kind and genuine she is and her love for music and life and the stories she tells. She is so interested in hearing about my life and I love that. I also love that she is a Houston Rockets fan like myself. She always seems so happy to talk to me. My connection with my Big is something I want to keep for a long time."
