Give a little time. Make a big difference.

You have a big opportunity in front of you—to not only impact a child’s life today, but to transform their potential for tomorrow.

Become a Big

Being a Big Brother or Big Sister is one of the most enjoyable things you'll ever do. For a few hours, a couple times a month, you can give a Little the invaluable gift of your friendship. By igniting their potential, you can start changing their life. Play a board game. Make fun crafts. Hit the playground together.

Want to learn more? Here's what to do.

  • Attend a volunteer information session. *Currently volunteer info sessions are being held on Zoom Thursdays at 12pm*
    These are held every Thursday at 12pm and 6pm at our office located at 1901 14th Ave S.
    This is a great way to meet a staff member, ask questions, and learn a little more about what being a Big means.
    You don't have to register to attend, just show up!
  • If you'd like for us to contact you, you can fill out a volunteer inquiry form here

Community Based Mentoring

Our Community Based Mentoring program matches adult volunteers with youth in the community. Once matched, the volunteer and child meet twice a month doing things they both enjoy.

School Based Mentoring

Our School Based Mentoring program matches high school and adult volunteer with youth. Once matched, the volunteer and child spend one hour every other week together at the school.

Beyond School Walls

Businesses agree to allow their employees to mentor youth. Mentors and Mentees will meet twice a month at your business at a time that is convenient for the business and the school.


The e-mentoring program is a way for volunteers to mentor a child within a virtual setting. Volunteers serve as mentors from their phones and computers at a minimum of 30 minutes each week.
