ORGANIZATION: Big Brothers Big Sisters of Northern Nevada

  • 126 people are interested

Adult mentors "Bigs" are needed to form caring relationships and provide guidance to elementary-aged youth "Littles".

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 environment, Bigs have the option to either meet virtually with their Littles or to meet with them at one of our school and after-school program partner locations. Both options require just one "meeting" per week either virtually during after-school or weekends, determined by the volunteer and family's schedules, or on the same day each week during the child's lunch time/recess at their school or after school at a Boys & Girls Club.

Youth who have a Big Brother or Big Sister have higher aspirations, greater confidence, and improved educational achievements leading to success in life. You have the power to change the life of a child for the better, forever. The only qualification you need is caring!

What if every child knew success was an option? At Big Brothers Big Sisters, we match at-risk children with caring adult mentors to ensure a strong future for everyone in our community. Are you ready to change the life of a child for the better forever? Start something big. Volunteer today!
