You don't have to be perfect to be a Big Brother or Big Sister!

 

When you become a Big Brother or Big Sister, you’re going to make a difference and we guarantee that you’ll not only have fun mentoring, but it’ll change your life. We firmly believe that there is nothing like seeing the growth of a child, and that’s what you’ll provide. Your guidance, support and understanding can help them develop, set and achieve their goals.

 

As a Big, you’ll have a chance to show your Little your world, all while experiencing theirs. Whether you take them to your favorite theater, catch a movie, visit the library or sight-see in a new community, connecting with a child (a Little) is a rewarding and enjoyable experience.

All it takes is a few outings a month to make a difference that will last a lifetime.

There are kids out there, ready to get started. Are you?
