Adult mentor "Bigs" are needed to provide caring relationships and guidance to impoverished youth in our community. In our community based program, you might check out the museum, shoot some hoops, go to the library, fix a bike--just one to two hours per week make all the difference! We encourage low cost or free activities to focus on the one to one relationship.
Studies show positive one-to-one relationships like Big Brothers and Big Sisters make kids more likely to do everything from graduate high school to helping out in their community.
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!
Volunteer mentors are matched with low-income, at-risk children to share community or school-based activities on a weekly basis. A one-year commitment is required. Research shows these one-to-one mentoring relationships lower risky behaviors and change both mentor and mentee lives for the better.
