Start something. Be a mentor.
Locally, Big Brothers Big Sisters serves children ages 7-18 through six distinct 1:1 mentoring programs.You and your Little can share the kinds of activities you already like to do. Play sports. Go on a hike. Read books. Or just give some encouragement and inspiration.
All programs are 1:1 (1 Big matched with 1 Little) and 1 full year.
Site-Based mentoring: Bigs spend 1 hour each week with their Little at a designated site. All sessions are supervised and activities are provided. This is a 1 year program/ commitment, meeting at the same time & day each week.
Community-based mentoring: Bigs and Littles get together 2-4 times a month for 2-5 hours. Outings take place in the neighborhoods and communities that the volunteer and child live in. This is a 1 year program/commitment.
As your first step in becoming a Big, all potential volunteers are required to attend a Volunteer Info Session.
Once you submit your information- name, phone & email contact info and residential zip code- we will call & email you all the details on how to take the first step!
