Become a Big Brother or Big Sister Today!
The Mission of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Mass/Metrowest is to provide children facing adversity with strong and enduring, professionally supported one-to-one relationships that change their lives for the better, forever.
Volunteers serve as mentors (Bigs) to children (Littles) who are living in poverty, come from single-parent households, or face other types of adversity. Bigs are a consistent adult presence in the lives of Littles celebrating their successes, facing challenges with them and helping them reach their full potential.
Bigs volunteer their time by spending a minimum of one hour with their Little each week. Bigs and Littles spend their time doing ordinary yet fun activities such as cooking, sports, local events, homework, and playing games. A Big gives their Little a friend to turn to, reliability, and a role model to look up to.
Volunteers are matched with youth based on factors such as shared interests, similar personality traits and location. Your Interview/ Match Support Specialist will use information gathered from in-depth interviews to match you with a Little. Your Match Support Specialist will also guide you through the process of building a strong, lasting relationship with a child facing adversity. We ask that volunteers serve as a mentor for at least one year. It is an incredibly rewarding experience, but please make sure you are able to make the commitment.
