What to Expect As a Mentor with Big Brothers Big Sisters
Being a Big Brother or Big Sister volunteer is one of the most enjoyable things you’ll ever do. Not to mention, one of the most fulfilling. You have the opportunity to help shape a child’s future for the better by empowering them to achieve. And the best part is, it’s actually a lot of fun. You and your Little can share the kinds of activities you already like to do.
Life is busy. Commitment can be daunting. Big Brothers Big Sisters offers a volunteer opportunity in your area that is flexible and fulfilling at the same time.
Our one-to-one mentoring model asks for parents, children, and volunteers to give a 12-month commitment to develop a life-changing mentor relationship. Each month we ask that our Bigs and Littles spend a minimum of 4 hours a month together.
So let’s look at the breakdown:
- 12 months x 4 hours = 48 hours
- In the span of one full year we are asking for what equates to two days of quality time to change the life of a child for the better, forever.
Volunteering just a few hours a month with a child can start something amazing. So why not apply to be a Big Brother or Big Sister today. There are kids out there ready to get started. Are you?
