Volunteer

Volunteering Is Fun, Big Time.

Being a Big Brother or Big Sister is one of the most enjoyable things you’ll ever do. Not to mention, one of the most fulfilling. You have the opportunity to help shape a youth’s future for the better by empowering him or her to achieve. And the best part is, it’s actually a lot of fun. You and your Little can share the kinds of activities you already like to do.

Play sports together. Go on a hike. Read books. Eat a pizza with extra anchovies. Or just give some advice and inspiration. Whatever it is you enjoy, odds are you’ll enjoy it even more with your Little—and you’ll be making a life-changing impact.

Volunteering just 2-4 hours per month with a youth can start something amazing – for both you and a Little.

Big Families & Big Couples

As a Big Couple, you and your significant other will volunteer together and will be matched with one youth. By being a Big Couple, you can impact a youth’s life without sacrificing time with your significant other.

As a Big Family, you’ll have the same advantages of being a Big Couple, with the added benefit of instilling the value of volunteering to your youth.

Either way, you’ll spend a few hours per month sharing fun activities you both enjoy. Matches typically see each other 2-3 times a month, and it’s flexible based on your schedule.
