Be a Big Sister

This is your chance to positively impact the next generation. As a Big Sister, you can help impact the life of a child for the better, forever.

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.

For just two hours, twice a month, you can give a Little the invaluable gift of your friendship. By simply changing her perspective of what the world can offer, you can literally start changing her life. Play a board game. Make fun crafts. Hit the playground together. Just as your options are unlimited, so is your Little’s potential.

Know someone who’d be a great Big Brother? 

At Big Brothers Big Sisters, we’re always looking for more men to be mentors. Fact is, we have boys ready and waiting to be matched with a role model. So tell the guys you know to sign up to become Bigs. They can do all the fun things they love to do already, like play video games, go fishing, even play football — only now they’d get to enjoy it with a child who can truly benefit from it. Read more about being a Big Brother.
