Become a Big

We believe that all children should have the opportunity to succeed in life and live up to their full potential. Some kids need someone to help them along that path. We’re always looking for people eager to positively impact a child and improve their community at the same time. Big Brothers especially are in high demand. For a few hours, a couple times a month, you can give a Little the invaluable gift of your friendship. By simply changing their perspective of what the world can offer, you can literally start changing their life.

Schedule a Training

All volunteers are required to attend a volunteer training to learn more about BBBS before acceptance as a Big.

Schedule an Interview

Once you apply, an Enrollment Specialist will reach out to schedule an in-person interview. Prior to scheduling, we require all volunteers to complete their Child Abuse History Clearance, Criminal Record Check, and FBI Fingerprints. Your Enrollment Specialist will share more information on each of these background checks.

Get Matched

Following the completion of your interview, training, background checks, and references, your file will be reviewed for approval.

Matches are made based on shared interests, proximity, and preferences. An Enrollment and Match Specialist will reach out to you when a match is found.

Play a board game. Make fun crafts. Hit the playground together. Just as your options are unlimited, so is your Littleā€™s potential.
