Big Brothers Big Sisters


The community-based program matches an adult

volunteer (“Big”) with a child (“Little”) and they get together in the community. “Bigs” and “Littles” have fun together creating memories that last a lifetime. We call it “Little Moments…Big Magic.” Research on our volunteer programs points to the powerful, positive, lasting impact “Bigs” have on children’s lives.


The school-based program matches high school students or college students with elementary or jr. high students. School based programs have shown to be effective in helping the socio-emotional needs of elementary or jr. high students. The program helps students improve their social skills and gives them confidence in the academic setting.


The site-based program matches employees from local organizations with children, and takes place at an office, a community room, or church. All programs provide the support needed to have successful relationships for children who need and want them.
