BE A BIG!

BECOME A BIG
BROTHER, SISTER, COUPLE, OR FAMILY

Young people realize the greatness within by engaging in relationships with supportive and like-minded mentors. 

And mentoring is simply sharing your experience, connections, and insight with the next generation. It can take place while watching a movie, playing sports, eating dinner, playing games, or exploring other shared hobbies. We provide our BIGS with one year of activities before you are matched with a young person. 

Bigs show up big for Littles as role models and accountability partners, offering a listening ear, guidance, and encouragement to empower Littles to reach their full potential. 

BBBSCA matches youths and adults based on location, interest, personalities, and other related factors. 

Once a Big and Little are matched, our Match Support Specialists are available around the clock helping you and your Little develop a lasting relationship. We connect you to everything you need to enjoy this life-changing experience. And we promise to celebrate and recognize you during the entire journey.

 

You can volunteer one or two ways as a mentor:

Children's Race

Community-Based

You'll pick up your Little Brother or Little Sister at least twice (2) per month and spend a minimum total of six (6) hours. To ensure the best possible outcomes, you need to plan to commit for 12 months. Trust us, most of our matches end up committing for longer.

Site Based

You'll visit your Little Brother or Little Sister once a week and spend one (1) hour with them at school or an after-school program site and spend a total of four (4) hours. To ensure the best possible outcomes, you need to plan to commit for 12 months. Trust us, most of our matches end up committing for longer.

We are currently accepting programs for the following applications.

Big Brothers Big Sisters Program

Youth are matched one-to-one with an adult volunteer, usually of the same gender. You'll both listen, laugh, learn and grow while getting to know one another. You'll pick up your Little at least twice (2) per month and spend a minimum total of four (4) hours. To ensure the best possible outcomes, you need to plan to commit to one (1) year, but we'd love it if you plan to commit for longer.

Big Couples and 

Big Families Program

Are you looking for opportunities to serve your community with your immediate family? Our Big Couples and Big Families make a lasting difference in their Littles' lives—and your lives are changed as well! You can choose to do things individually or as a group. Like the traditional program, one adult will pick up your Little Brother or Little Sister at least twice (2) per month and spend a minimum total of four (4) hours. However, to ensure the best possible outcomes, you need to plan to commit to 12 months.
