Big Brothers Big Sisters of Cape Cod & the Islands

With just a one-year commitment to hang out for three hours two times a month, a Big Brother or Big Sister can make a huge impact on a child’s life. You’ll be matched with a child who shares your interests, so finding things to do together won’t be hard. And our professionally trained staff are here to support you every step of the way.

Life experience, enthusiasm, empathy and reliability is all we ask of volunteers. Our matches are made for one-to-one friendships of the same gender. Match meetings - which can include activities as normal as going fishing, doing arts & crafts, or going for a walk - take place at times and in places convenient to the Big and the Little.
