High School Bigs


Activities enjoyed by all are attending school functions, ball games, plays, doing homework, work out at the Y, baking cookies, and more.

Volunteers should be at least a sophomore and 16 years of age with Drivers License.

2 high school students may be teamed together to be a “Big” to 1 child.

Community-based Mentoring is the traditional Big Brothers Big Sisters relationship. It’s all about one-on-one time spent with the volunteer and the young person doing things they enjoy — one hour a week filled with shared interests and activities like:

  • * Shooting hoops

  • * Playing a board game

  • * Sharing a pizza

  • * Taking a walk in the park

  • * Or just hanging out and talking.

The schedule can be flexible to meet the needs of mentors and young people in different kinds of situations. Some Bigs meet their Littles on the weekend or in the evening. Others get together with their Littles after school. There’s almost no one so busy that they can’t find a way to fit in a few hours a month.

Whom Do We Serve?

Whom we serve

With the help of a network of donors, partners, and advocates in all 50 states, Big Brothers Big Sisters targets the children who need us most, including those living in single parent homes, growing up in poverty and coping with parental incarceration. Starting something begins with finding a great match between a Big and a Little. Making these matches, and performing all the background work involved with them, is possible because of donations from people like you. It's also why we're able to offer such a wide variety of programs that pair children, ages 6 through 18, with role models in one-to-one relationships.

A focus on communities facing adversity

Big Brothers Big Sisters operates several special programs to help us meet the needs of communities facing adversity. These programs help us focus our work with donors and partners in recruiting new Bigs, meet the needs of traditionally underserved communities, and assist communities impacted by circumstances like parental incarceration or military deployment.
