What if every child fulfilled their potential? Think how amazing that would be. You can start more Littles on the path to big things. For just a few hours a month, you can give a Little the invaluable gift of your friendship.


Being a Big Brother or Big Sister is one of the most enjoyable things you’ll ever do. Not to mention, one of the most fulfilling. You have the opportunity to help shape a child’s future for the better by empowering them 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.

Play sports together. Go on a hike. Read books. Eat a pizza with extra anchovies. Or just give some advice and inspiration. Whatever it is you enjoy, odds are you’ll enjoy them even more with your Little—and you’ll be making a life-changing impact.


Why do we need Big Brothers?  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 that give a young person someone to look up to.  And learn why so many are now saying, “I get back so much more than I give.”


Doing good is a beautiful thing.  As a Big Sister, you can give a girl an opportunity to see beyond her everyday world and dream big.  It’s good for your Little, as well as your community.  And it can start with simply letting her enjoy the things you already love to do, but can grow into something bigger.
