Big Brothers and Big Sisters are adult friends and role models for children who are in need of additional support and guidance. By reaching out to a child, you can make a meaningful connection that will make a difference in his or her life and in the community.
A "match" is made with a child based on a volunteer's and a child's needs, preferences, interests and hobbies. The program allows some flexibility regarding time commitment, but all community-based volunteers must meet the following minimum requirements:
- Eighteen (18) years of age or older
- Available to participate in activities with a child on a regular, consistent basis
- Able to make a minimum one-year commitment once matched
- Able to commit at least 3 – 5 hours of time every other week
