Who Are Bigs?
Big Brothers and Big Sisters are mature, stable adults who enjoy building friendships with a child. They are volunteers who are willing to spend quality time with a child and make a difference in their lives. Big volunteers come from all walks of life that can commit to 1-2 hours a week and are at least 18 years of age for our Site Based and Community Based Program.
Our Bigs and Littles spend time weekly doing activities that they both enjoy while forming a lifetime friendship.
How Can I Volunteer?
There are many ways you can Start Something today and become a mentor to a child in our program. We have two types of programs. Our Community Program allows you to spend time doing activities in the community with your Little. This can include going to the park, visiting a museum , cheering on our Red Raiders etc. Our second program is our Site Based Program which allows you to meet with your Little at one of our site locations after school, or for you to serve as a "Lunch Buddy" which allows you to have lunch with your Little once a week at their school. This is a great program for individuals who have an agreed lunch once a week to sit and talk with their Little.
