During this pandemic, BBBS of Washtenaw County is still enrolling volunteers, virtually! We will send you a Google Form as your volunteer application and host a virtual training for you! As of now, all volunteer interviews are virtual or over the phone.
Our mission: Big Brothers Big Sisters of Washtenaw County aims to provide children facing adversity with strong and enduring, professionally supported 1-to-1 relationships that change their lives for the better, forever.
How you can help: Kids in our community are waiting for their mentor, their Big. Becoming a Big Brother or Big Sister is one of the most enjoyable things you’ll ever do. Not to mention, one of the most rewarding. As a Big, you have the opportunity to make an enormous positive impact in the life of a child. Your guidance and understanding can help a child believe they can have a brighter future by empowering them with the tools and support they need to reach their full potential. And the best part? It’s actually a lot of fun!
