Uplifting Kids is always looking for people eager to positively impact a child and improve their community at the same time. And, right now is no different. Big Sisters are in high demand. So, Start Something.
For a few hours, a couple times a month, you can give a Little the invaluable gift of your friendship. By simply changing their perspective of what the world can offer, you can literally start changing their lives. And sometimes it’s as simple as playing video games, going to a museum, or just hanging out together.
Why do we need Big Sisters? More than 70% of our children waiting for a Big are girls, but only 3 out of every 10 inquiries to volunteer come from men. Research shows that having the positive influence of a Big sister makes a real difference in a girls 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."
A call to women of color. Disproportionately the children we serve and those ready and waiting to be matched are African-American and Hispanic girls. Their parents seek our support, knowing a Big sister can recognize their son's potential and model positive choices that put him on the path for success in and out of school.
Ready to be a Big sister? Just call if no answer or we are busy just simply leave a message and one of our Staff member will contact you shortly to discuss the next steps. You may be asked to:
- provide references
- participate in an in-person interview
- go through a background check
You will help us match a child facing adversity with an adult role model. Your gift will allow us to change the life of a child for the better, forever we thank you in advance for making a difference please call or email us with any questions thanks.
