Be a Big. Give a Little something back.
You have a big opportunity in front of you - to not only impact a child's life today, but to transform their potential for tomorrow.
As a Big Brother, you have a big opportunity in front of you—to not only impact a child’s life today, but to transform their potential for tomorrow. We’re always looking for people eager to become a mentor and improve their community at the same time. Big Brothers are in high demand. So, let’s start something together.
More than 70% of our children waiting for a Big are boys, but only 3 out of every 10 inquiries to volunteer come from men. Research shows that having the positive influence of a Big Brother makes a real difference in a boy's life. So join the hundreds of thousands of volunteers that give a young person someone to look up to. And learn why so many are now saying, “I get back so much more than I give.”
As a Big Sister, you can give a girl an opportunity to see beyond her everyday world and dream big. It’s good for your Little, as well as your community. And it can start with simply letting her enjoy the things you already love to do, but can grow into something bigger.
Share an activity that gives you something in common to talk about. Go to the library, check out a book and read together. Play a board game. Go on a nature walk. Or hang out and talk about the music you like. Most important: keep it simple and enjoy yourselves!
Start something significant with your significant other. As a Big Couple, the two of you can provide a child with a team of support and help him discover his positive potential. A Couple Match will be matched with a Little Brother from our waitlist. You and your spouse can share time with your Little individually or as a couple. This is a great way to spend time together while also changing the life of a child. And the child benefits from having a Big Brother and a Big Sister!
