A great option for couples that would prefer a shared experience as opposed to each having their own Little.
What is a Big Couple?
As a Big Couple through Big Brothers Big Sisters, you and your spouse or long-term partner can both become Bigs to a Little in our program . You can all do things together and/or you can each share time with the Little individually. This is a great way to spend time together while also changing the life of a child. And, the child benefits from having a Big Brother and a Big Sister!
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 70 Little Brothers waiting for a Big Brother or Big Couple, you can make a difference, so start something today.
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.
