Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
Provide children facing adversity with strong and enduring, professionally supported one-to-one relationships that change their lives for the better, forever.
Adults 40 and older bring magic and fun to the life of a elementary-school aged child and in doing so, discover the child in themselves again!
Big Brothers Big Sisters of Southwest VA's Protect and Respect program is designed specifcally for seniors aged 50 and older who want to bring some magic into the life of a child! Our seniors are matched with a Little Brother or a Little Sister in need of a special friend to help them through the year. Our senior Big Brothers or Big Sisters choose to volunteer at a school site, or in the community.
At the school, Bigs may work on homework with the child, play board games, make a craft, or share a special lunch. In the community, Bigs and Littles may go to a movie, play baseball, bake cookies, or share in an activity they both enjoy. Bigs make a difference in the lives of children and in doing so discover the child in themeselves again!
