Being a Big Brother or Big Sister is one of the most enjoyable things you'll ever do. Not to mention, one of the most fulfilling. As a Big, you have the opportunity to make a tremendous difference 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 to achieve and reach their full potential. And the best part is; it's actually a lot of fun. You and your Little can share the kinds of activities you already like to do.

?Play sports together. Go on a hike. Read books. Eat a pizza with extra anchovies. Or just give some advice and inspiration. Whatever it is you enjoy, odds are you'll enjoy them even more with your Little-and you'll be making a life-changing impact. Volunteering just a few hours a month with a child can start something amazing. So why not apply to be a Big today. There are kids out there ready to get started. Are you?
