The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
Thank you for your interest in becoming a Big Brother or Big Sister to a child in our community. The men and women who volunteer as mentors come from different cultures, backgrounds, ages and occupations, but they all share a common goal - to provide a child with friendship and support while encouraging them to reach their potential.
Prospective Big Brothers and Big Sisters say they would like to give something back, yet most end up saying, "I get so much more than I give." One Big Sister said that, "It is the most rewarding thing I have ever done."
It takes a special person to be a Big Brother or Big Sister, and not everyone can qualify for, or make the commitment to, our program. At Big Brothers Big Sisters, we don’t just match any adult with any child - we build relationships between adults and the youth in our community.
