Adult volunteers, called Big Brothers and Big Sisters, spend a few hours a week (at least 3 times a month) with their Little Brothers and Little Sisters. Volunteers are not counselors, babysitters, or tutors--but friends and positive role models for children in need.
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. You have the opportunity to help shape a child’s future for the better by empowering him or her to achieve. And the best part is, it’s actually a lot of fun. You and your Little can share the kinds or activities you already like to do.
Play sports together. Go on a hike. Read books. Eat a pizza, 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 with a child can start something amazing.
