A Big Brother or Big Sister (Big) is the older friend or role model all younger kids deserve. A Big is a consistent adult in the life of a child who is ready to have fun, be silly, teach and be open to learning a few things along the way. As a Big you will be matched one-to-one with a deserving child in one of our available programs. Most of the children in our programs are at-risk, between the ages of 7-12 and live in single parent homes. Just by being a consistent friend to a child you can have a positive impact that may change a life.
- Improve their sense of self and sense of future.
