What we're about
Are you ready to make a difference in the life of a child? We are looking for people who want to positively impact a child and improve their community at the same time. We want you to get to know a wonderful kid, make a difference and have fun as you learn together. Big Brothers Big Sisters requires all volunteers meet the following requirements: • Be at least 18 years old • Be willing and able to make at least a one-year commitment to the program • Be willing and able to meet with your Little Brother/Little Sister for the required time commitment • Possess a valid driver's license and current car insurance • Have a safe driving record (no DUIs within the past five years; no more than two moving violations in the past year) • Not have been charged or convicted of a felony within the past five years, or misdemeanor within the past two years) If you do not meet all the requirements, there are other ways to get involved with us! Make a donation to support one of our matches, sign up for our newsletter or advocate on our behalf through your networks to encourage others to get involved. More than 70% of our kids waiting for a Big are boys, but only 3 in every 10 volunteer inquiries come from men. So, we confess…we’re in dire need of a few good men and would welcome your referrals!
