It takes many people to make our organization successful. We are committed to defending potential every single day.
JUST BE YOU
Become A Big
All you have to do is explore and learn together a couple hours a month for a year. Play sports together. Go on a hike. Read books. Eat pizza with pineapple. Or just give some advice and inspiration. Whatever you enjoy, odds are you’ll enjoy it even more with your Little – and you’ll be making a life-changing impact.
We connect a Little of any age with a Big to spend time together in the local community – littles in the program are empowered to ignite their potential as they grow into mature teens and thriving young adults.
START THEM DOWN A PATH TO AN EVEN BRIGHTER, MORE PROMISING FUTURE.
You know what’s best for your kid. You’re not just part of the process – you’re part of the success. From the start, we need you to inform us about your child’s interests, strengths, and needs – and to approve the mentor Match. Once the Match begins, you remain closely involved approving activities and talking to BBBS staff about your child’s progress.
Your child’s safety is our first priority. We take extensive care to screen every volunteer with background checks, in-person interviews, and personal training. Once Matched, our professionally trained Match Specialists stay in contact with you as they continue to closely monitor every Match.
We have statistical evidence that youth matched with a big experience leads to increased confidence & self-esteem, improved school performance, higher avoidance of drugs and alcohol and better interaction with family & friends.
