Prior to coming to Big Brothers Big Sisters, I worked with runaway children and became inspired when I observed a relationship between a Little Brother and Big Brother.  The only adult he cared about was his volunteer Big Brother.  At that moment, I knew that I had to get involved with the BBBS mission.  25 years later, I am still inspired daily by the power of friendship.

Be a Big

For a few hours a week or month (depending on the program), you can give a Little the invaluable gift of your friendship. By simply changing his or her perspective of what the world can offer, you can literally start changing his or her life. And sometimes it’s as simple as playing video games, going to a museum, or just hanging out together.
