- There is a waiting list of Polk County children, ages 6 - 12, who are so eager to have someone like you to help do the same for them!
- Community Big Brothers/Big Sisters are paired with boys or girls from the community who simply need grown up friends to spend just 2-3 hours/week (9 hours/month).
- The two of you can choose whether evenings (during the week) or weekend days work better for your schedules.
- Training is provided and Big Bros/Big Sisters' agency will provide support in answering questions and providing ideas for a successful match!
