Volunteering is fun, big time.
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. Try out a new fruit each month. 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.
Can a couple be a Big?
A couple may be matched with one Little. As a couple, you have the ability to offer twice as many new experiences and skills. 80% of our Littles come from a single parent home, so couples offer the unique opportunity to expose Littles to a new way to approach communication and social interaction. Littles also reap the rewards of bonding with two positive adults. Couples have the benefit of supporting one another to strengthen the quality of the match. The couple can go out with the Little together or split the time. We encourage couples to work together from their own set of strengths. One may be great at tutoring and offering academic support, while the other may be great at active activities. In turn, the Little reaps the rewards of a full and more balanced experience.
