In just a few hours a month, you can impact a child’s future. By simply grabbing a slice of pizza, taking a trip to the library or to the park, you can make a difference in the life of a child. What is a Big? A ‘Big’ is a volunteer mentor who is matched in a one-to-one relationship with a child (‘Little’) in our program. A mentor is a friend, a supporter, a positive and consistent addition to the life of a Little. A Big Brother or Big Sister is not a replacement parent, a babysitter or a therapist. Children need someone to help share a different perspective on life and help them realize their endless potential.
