Be a Big Brother

BBBS little and bigKnow someone who would be a great Big Brother?

At Big Brothers Big Sisters, we are always looking for more men to be mentors. In fact, we have boys ready and waiting to be matched with a role model. So tell the guys you know to sign up to become Bigs. They can do all the fun things they love to do already, like play video games, go fishing, even play football — only now they get to enjoy it with a child who can truly benefit from it.

Bigs Start Something Awesome!

Be a Big Brother — give a Little something back!

You have a big opportunity in front of you to impact a child’s life today, while transforming their potential for tomorrow.

Go big.

We are always looking for people eager to positively impact a child and improve their community at the same time. And, right now is no different. Big Brothers are in high demand. So, Start Something.

For a few hours, a couple of 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 lives. And, sometimes it is as simple as playing video games, going to a museum, or just hanging out together.

Why do we need Big Brothers?

More than 70% of our children waiting for a Big are boys, but only three out of every 10 inquiries to volunteer come from men. Research shows that having the positive influence of a Big Brother makes a real difference in a boy’s life. So, join the hundreds of thousands of volunteers that give a young person someone to look up to. And, learn why so many are now saying, “I get back so much more than I give.”

A call to men of color.

Disproportionately the children we serve and those ready and waiting to be matched are African-American and Hispanic boys. Their parents seek our support, knowing a Big Brother can recognize their son’s potential and model positive choices that put him on the path for success in and out of school.  

But, don’t take it from us. Check out some real life Stories of Bigs and Littles right here. And, if you still have questions, please call us at 318.323.9034 or email us at
