Community-Based Big Brothers Big Sisters

"Being a Big Brother is neither time consuming, nor requires special skills or spending money. I wish I hadn’t waited so long to sign up! It only requires you to care about making a difference in a young person’s life. I learned to see the world through the eyes of a child. A world full of wonderful things, things I took for granted and often overlooked."

—‘Big Brother’ for 8-year-old boy

You choose when, where and how to connect!

Our core program matches a volunteer Big Brother or Sister mentor with a child who could benefit from a one-to-one relationship with a caring adult. ‘Bigs’ and ‘Littles’ meet a minimum of four hours per month, at places and times convenient to both. The two share similar interests, and spend their time together engaged in activities such as playing catch, watching movies, touring museums, cheering on the local sports teams or simply hanging out.

Key advantages of this mentoring option are:

  • Independence to set a schedule that works for you
  • Flexibility to do a variety of activities together
  • Opportunity to meet other ‘Bigs’ and ‘Littles’ at monthly events
  • Ability to take advantage of discounts for matches with Big Deals!
