The Big Brothers Big Sisters program creates and supports one-to-one mentoring relationships that ignite the power and promise of youth.

Consider being a BIG in one of two ways:

  1. Community-based program

    • 12-month minimum commitment

    • One hour per week

    • The volunteer (Big) takes the mentee (Little) out to do a free/low-cost activity in the community.

    • The match is supported by professionally trained staff.

  2. Site-based program

    • One school year commitment (no summers)

    • 2 hours per week

    • The volunteer (Big) meets the mentee (Little) at a local school.

    • The match is supported by professionally trained staff.

Reach out if you are interested! We’d LOVE TO HAVE YOU as a Big!

Typically, 4 information sessions are held each month - 3 on Zoom and 1 at the YSB office.

This is a terrific way to have fun while making a HUGE difference in the life of a child!
