Being a Big Brother or Big Sister is one of the most rewarding and enjoyable things you will ever do. It’s easy, too. Your Little can join you for the kinds of activities you already like to do, such as:
Playing a board game
Sharing a pizza
Taking a walk in the park
Or just hanging out and talking.
Just a couple of hours a week can change a young person’s life!
Little Brothers and Little Sisters come from all kinds of backgrounds. Some are younger (as young as six) and some are teenagers. Some may live on your block and some a few miles away. But they all have one thing in common: They need the friendship and guidance of someone like YOU.
“As a Big, you’re simply a friend. Your friendship fits your lifestyle. Busy people of all ages can get involved-choose the program that works best for you!” — Ron, age 54, Big Brother
