Being a Big Brother or Big Sister is one of the most rewarding time in your life. You will not realize how many smiles you will have. Not to mention, one of the most fulfilling moment to put smiles on childrens' faces. You have the opportunity to help shape a child’s future for the better by empowering him or her to achieve. And the best part is, it’s actually a lot of fun. You and your Little can share the kinds of activities you already like to do. Fun times are playing baseball, watching a movie, or playing video games. We have loads of board games in office if you want to have a one-on-one activity.

Mentoring works. Your time that you give to a child's future is priceless.

Our Programs For Volunteers

Community-Based One-To-One
Volunteers who agree to spend time each week with a child. Our One-To-One program matches volunteers 18 years or older with a boy or girl from the “Ready To Be Matched” list. It's as easy as one hour per week. The volunteer meets with their Little on a weekly basis for a commitment of at least one year.
School-Based One-To-One
Participate one-on-one with a Little at a supervised after-school program in the grade schools. School-based volunteers can help with homework, play games, participate in the After-School activities, or just spend time visiting with their matched Little. School-based volunteers must be at least 16 years old.

Couples Match
A husband and wife are matched with a boy/girl from our “Ready To Be Matched” list. They meet weekly with their Little either together or separately in the community.

Family Match
A family match includes a Little in a family atmosphere. This program is designed to help your children learn to give back to the community by volunteering. A Family Match is open to any family with a child over the age of 8 years old. These matches are paired with a child of at least three years younger than the son/daughter involved in the match.

Lunch Buddies
Would you like to be a Big but just don’t feel you have the time? Why not be a Lunch Buddy to a child in one of our schools? It takes only an hour per week and the commitment is for the school year. All contacts are on school grounds. The time spent is minimal and the rewards are endless.
