WHY BECOME A BIG?

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: shooting hoops, playing a board game, sharing a pizza, taking a walk in the park, or just hanging out and talking.

For a few hours, a couple times a month, you have the opportunity to 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.
