Think back to when you were a child. Who was that person, other than your parent who brought a little magic into your life just by being there? By becoming a Big Brother or a Big Sister you can be that person in the life of a child. And you will build treasured memories through a friendship that will change your life, and a child's life forever. Discover spontaneous, small moments of shared fun, creating BIG memories that last a lifetime.
Being a Big is something anyone can do - the only requirements are a willingness to be a friend, to have fun, and to see the world (and yourself) through the eyes of a young person. Most Bigs are adults of any age, but we also have programs for high school and college students.
As a Big, you and your Little will do everyday activities like playing sports, seeing a movie, cooking, going over schoolwork, visiting a museum, washing the car, taking a walk, volunteering in their community, or just hanging out. And as in any friendship, it is the spontaneous, small moments of shared fun or discovery that you will remember forever. That is the magic a Big brings to the life of a child-and that a Little brings to the life of a Big.
