Who says volunteering can't be fun! Volunteers with Big Brothers Big Sisters meet with a child, one-to-one to have fun, according to their interests. We have two programs: school-based and community-based. It's not only fun but you can make a difference in a child's life just by being their friend.
In the school-based, you meet with your Little Brother or Sister at the elementary school during the school day for 45 min. once a week. This is not about tutoring (although reading is always encouraged). It's about being a friend and building a relationship with your Little.
In the community-based program, a mentor meets with a child, one-to-one, for 6-8 hours a month. Together they plan activities according to their interests and time schedules. Discover the kid in you! Now you have an excuse to have fun. Go hiking, fishing, swimming, shoot hoops, go to the movies or just hang out. When was the last time you went skateboarding? It doesn't matter what you do, only that you spend precious time with a child who will learn,by example, that someone cares.
Big Brothers Big Sisters also now serves both Midland and Ector Counties, although Ector County only offers a school-based program at this time.
We'll work with your schedule.
