Think back to when you were younger. Other than your parents, who touched your life in some simple but special way? Who is that person you always remember with a smile?
Being a Big Brother or Big Sister is about sharing simple, magical moments with a child. Each of us has had a special person in our lives who opened doors and widened our horizons. By being a Big, you can do the same for a child, and you will both be forever changed by the experience.
“Bigs” and “Littles” share activities they both enjoy. That might include playing sports, doing arts and crafts, baking cookies, seeing a movie, fishing, going to a sporting event, taking walks, going to a museum, or just hanging out. In this program you schedule your visits at a time that is convenient for you and your “Little” and you get to enjoy these fun activities three or four times per month.
Volunteers must be 18 or older and have a valid driver’s license, an interest in children, and the ability to get along well with others. Every volunteer is checked for background information to make sure they’re the best match for the child.
