About

Big Sisters are women (age 19 or older) who spend 2-4 hours a week for a minimum of one year with their Little Sister (age 7-17) in a one-to-one mentoring friendship.

Each Big & Little Sister match gets together once a week to participate in fun, no/low cost community-based activities they both enjoy such as crafts, sports, going to the beach, watching movies, and simply hanging out and spending time together! Big Sisters group activities are also offered each month.

Big Sisters can take vacations, travel for work or miss some weekly outings, within reason.

Big Sister volunteers will receive training and on-going support from qualified professional staff throughout their relationship with their Little Sister. Big Sister volunteers have the unique opportunity to have a positive impact on a young girls life. Big Sisters enjoy the bonding experience with their Little Sister and making a difference in their community that they can see up close. Being a mentor also gives volunteers great skills that are transferable to every aspect of their lives such as communication and relationship-building skills, patience and understanding, and an increased sense of self-awareness.
