There isn't a better way to volunteer than to do it with your spouse. By being a Big Couple you can help impact a child's life without sacrificing time with your spouse. There are over 200 Little Brothers waiting for a Big Brother or Big Couple, you can make a difference, so start something today.
A Big Couple is a married couple who commits to volunteer together and is matched to one waiting Little Brother. Movies, sporting events and grilling out are all great activities that a Big Couple can do with their Little while getting to know them.
Why Big Couples?
More than 70% of our children waiting for a Big are boys. One way to match these waiting boys is to match them with Big Couple. It's good for the kid because they are able to experience a healthy, loving relationship and it's good for the volunteers because they don't have to give up time with each other in order to volunteer.
