Big Brothers Big Sisters Orientation & Training

Please consider becoming a Big Brother or Big Sister and help change the life of a child facing adversity for the better, forever. It doesn’t take a lot of time (between 4-8 hours a month, depending on the program). The real focus is on being consistent, and spending one-to-one quality time with your Little. Being a Big often means just including your Little in things you already like to do — going to a ball game, or a museum, or the beach, or a bike ride.

 

The first step is to attend one of our Big Orientation & Training sessions.
