Are you available evenings and weekends? If so, then now is a perfect time to become a Big Brother or Big Sister in our community-based mentoring program. Community-based means you meet with your Little out in the community by going to a park, ball game, window shopping, or making a meal together. We ask that you make a 12-month commitment and agree to meet with your Little a couple of hours each week. With your help, we can ignite potential in all the children we serve, ensuring them a better future!

If you'd like to learn more, contact us, and we will sign you up for the next available group orientation!
