Big Brothers Big Sisters serves children ages 5-15 in our local community. Their backgrounds and personalities are unique, but they all have a need for friendship with a caring adult. We ask our volunteers for an 18 month commitment, and to spend 1-2 hours, a week with the child. Big Brothers are matched with Little Brothers and Big Sisters with Little Sisters, or Little Brothers ages 5-8. This is also a great opportunity for Big Couples and Big Families to be matched with a child. Activities that many matches enjoy are going to the park, walking the dog, going fishing, arts and crafts, making dinner together and many other activities. We have a list of activity ideas here.
Commitment Level: 18 months, 1-2 hours a week
