The Gift of Big isn’t just volunteering your time, The Gift of Big gives the world what it needs most — the potential of America’s youth. At Big Brothers Big Sisters you don’t need to give the biggest gift, but everyone has the chance to give the gift of BIG

THE NEXT BIG THING IS YOU.

​BE A MENTOR TODAY.

​We know that one moment shared by one kid and one mentor, can unlock limitless potential. An important heart to heart, or a simple inside joke can be the crucial expression of care that ignites and empowers a child’s bright future. Being a Big means challenging, supporting, and collaborating with your Little. It means showing up. It means watching with pride as they begin to realize and own their potential. And standing by their side to defend of that potential. In just a few hours a month, a Big and Little can change the world together. 

It Takes Little To Be Big.
