Adult mentors ("Bigs") are needed to form caring relationships and provide guidance to local youth facing adversity ("Littles").

Our Community-Based Mentoring Program is for Bigs 21 years and older, and offers flexibility in scheduling and activities (2-4 meetings per month to be scheduled by you and the Little's family). Pick up your Little at their home and take them to do something fun out in the community like a hike, visit to the museum, pizza night, etc. and then return them to their home after the outing. 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.

About Big Brothers Big Sisters of Northern Nevada

Location:

1300 Foster Dr, Ste 210, Reno, NV 89509, US

Mission Statement

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. Be a friend to a child and have fun with them on a consistent, regular basis. By mentoring an at-risk child for 4-6 hours each month, you can make a positive, long-lasting impact on a child and on our community! At any given time, we have over 100 children on our waiting list, so we have a great need for adults to volunteer in our program to be caring mentors and friends for the children that we serve. Our mentors (Bigs) help mentees (Littles) navigate life's challenges as they strive for a successful future. Bigs serve as a consistent presence in the lives of their Littles and support them in setting and achieving goals that ignite their full potential. Are you ready to change the life of a child for the better forever? Start something big. Volunteer today!
