By mentoring a child, you defend their potential. You inspire and empower them to believe in themselves and achieve their biggest possible future.
As a Big in our Community-Based Mentoring program, you and your Little get together for 4 hours each month, with a minimum commitment of 1 year.
You and your Little can participate in activities throughout the community together, such as go for walks, play catch, watch a football game, make dinner...the possibilities are endless. The one thing that doesn't change is that you are building a friendship that will make a difference in your Little's life.
You can also mentor a child with a friend, spouse or family member by being a Big Duo or Family Match.
Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Iowa's mission is to create and support one-to-one mentoring relationships that ignite the power and promise of youth. Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Iowa's vision it that all youth achieve their full potential.
Give a child your greatest gift, your time, and become a Big!
By partnering with parents/guardians, volunteers and others in the community we are accountable for each child in our program achieving:
-Higher aspirations, greater confidence and better relationships
-Avoidance of risky behaviors
