Great things happen in Little moments!
You can Start Something by taking just a couple hours a week to share the invaluable gift of friendship with a youth in your community. As a "Big," all you need to do is listen, laugh, and talk about ordinary days and dreams for the future. Share a hobby, play catch, explore a museum, ride bikes, or just hang out. Be a mentor, a role model, a friend...be someone your Little can count on. It's that simple!
No matter where you live in Ventura County, right now there is a child in your community waiting for a Big Brother or a Big Sister. These children can develop life skills and self-confidence with the support of mentors who care. Research proves that the positive influence of a Big makes a significant difference in the life of a youth who needs a role model.
But it's not just the Littles who benefit. Bigs often say that they discover their own personal benefits and tell us, "I get back so much more than I give."
Are you ready to be a Big Brother or Big Sister? Call us or stop by our office to start the process!
We ask Big mentors to spend at least 2 hours weekly with their Little for the course of one year...a small amount of time for a lifetime of difference!
