Being a mentor is about starting a consistent friendship and empowering children to believe they can achieve what they didn’t think was possible. You can simply incorporate your Little into your everyday life: play sports together, picnic in the park, take your dog for a hike or go to the beach. Being a Big will be one of the most enjoyable and fulfilling things you do, while also being a force for change in our community.
We’re always looking for people eager to positively impact a child and improve their community at the same time. Big Brothers especially are in high demand.
For a few hours, once a week, or a couple times a month, you can give a Little the invaluable gift of your friendship. By simply changing their perspective of what the world can offer, you can literally start changing their life. Play a board game. Make fun crafts. Hit the playground together. Just as your options are unlimited, so is your Little’s potential. But don’t just take it from us. Read our Big Impact match stories of Bigs & Littles for stories of what it means to be a role model.
Ready to be a Big? Apply today. After you complete it, a Big Brothers Big Sisters staff member will contact you shortly. So many of our Bigs tell us that becoming a Big was the best decision they ever made. What are you waiting for?
