Be a Big. Give a Little something back.
We’re always looking for people eager to positively impact a child and improve their community at the same time. Big Brothers especially are in high demand.
For a few hours, a couple times a month, you can give a Little the invaluable gift of your friendship. By simply changing their perspective of what the world can offer, you can literally start changing their life. Play a board game. Make fun crafts. Hit the playground together. Just as your options are unlimited, so is your Little’s potential. If you still have questions, head over to our FAQs for more answers.
Ready to be a Big? Just fill out our simple online inquiry form, linked at "Become a Big" below. After you do, a Big Brothers Big Sisters staff member will contact you. So many of our Bigs tell us that becoming a Big was the best decision they ever made. What are you waiting for?
Want to mentor together as a couple? We also offer friends, married couples, or long-term romantic partners the opportunity to become a "Big Couple" and together mentor one young person. Each one of you should click "Become Big Couple" below, enter your info, and we will follow up with you both!
Know someone who would make a great Big Brother?
At Big Brothers Big Sisters, we’re always looking for more men to be mentors. We have boys ready and waiting to be matched with a role model. So tell the guys you know to sign up to become Bigs. They can do all the fun things they love to do already, like see movies, play video games, and go hiking, only now they'd get to enjoy it with a child who can truly benefit from it. More than 70% of our children waiting for a Big are boys, but only 3 out of every 10 inquiries to volunteer come from men. Research shows that having the positive influence of a Big Brother makes a real difference in a boy's life. So join the hundreds of thousands of volunteers who give a young person someone to look up to.
