BE A BIG

BECOMING A BIG IS EASY!

Help clear the path to a child's biggest possible future in just 5 steps.

BIG PROGRAMS

We understand that your time is valuable, so we’ve created two unique programs to become a Big in your community. Learn more about our Site and Community based programs to fit within your needs below.

SITE BASED

In this program, volunteers meet with their Little Brother or Little Sister one hour a week at a nearby school or after-school site. (Check with your employer; some businesses encourage staff to volunteer by offering to pay for volunteer time.)  We ask for volunteers to commit to at least 12 months in this program, but most stay in the program nearly twice that long!

COMMUNITY

This program allows you the opportunity to pick up your Little Brother or Little Sister at the child’s home and spend time engaged in activities you both enjoy in the community. Outings can range from going for a walk, working on arts and crafts, taking a bike ride or watching a sporting event. Through partnerships, our agency also provides free or reduced-priced tickets to our Bigs and Littles to various events in the community. In the Community-Based program, volunteers spend at least eight hours with their Little each month, typically in the evenings or on the weekend.

Can't be a Big?

We are always in need of quality volunteer and intern help. Please contact us if you are interested in spending a few hours pitching in on various projects & events.
