Description

Big Brothers and Big Sisters come from all walks of life and of all ages. We honor parental, youth, and volunteer choice relating to age, race, and special interests when pairing a Big and a Little as well as geographic proximity. We ask Bigs to meet Littles twice per month for 2 - 4 hours per outing; engaging in a variety of activities that meet their shared interests. Volunteers usually pick the child up at his or her home and bring him or her back at the end of their outing or meet during the week at the child's school.
