Volunteering is fun, big time.

Being a Big Brother or Big Sister is one of the most enjoyable things you’ll ever do. Not to mention, one of the most fulfilling. You have the opportunity to help shape a child’s future for the better by empowering them to achieve. And the best part is, it’s actually a lot of fun. You and your Little can share the kinds of activities you already like to do.


Play sports together. Go on a hike. Read books. Eat a pizza with extra anchovies. Or just give some advice and inspiration. Whatever it is you enjoy, odds are you’ll enjoy them even more with your Little—and you’ll be making a life-changing impact.

Becoming a volunteer is easy.

Our intake process only requires 3 in-person visits to the Big Brothers Big Sisters office.

          1.   Volunteer Orientation/Information Meeting. These meetings are held every Thursday at noon and 6pm at the Big Brothers Big Sisters Office. They are designed to give you an in-depth view of the BBBS program. The location is 1901 14th Avenue South.

          2.   Volunteer Interview. If you choose to apply after orientation, you will be scheduled to return for a one-on-one interview with one of the BBBS professional staff.

          3.   Volunteer Training. Training topics include communicating with children, dealing with problems that may arise in a match, working with parents, and child safety.
