Volunteering is fun, big time.

Being a Big Brother or Big Sister is one of the most enjoyable things you’ll ever do.


Inquiry - We need some basic information about you to get the process started. Give us a call or inquire online. (You will be taken to the BBBS America site. Don't worry, we will still get your inquiry when you submit the form.)

Orientation & Application: Once you have completed your inquiry, we will email you to schedule a quick call to walk through the eligibility requirements and enrollment steps to becoming a Big. We will then send you an application and other required steps including an online background check to get started.

Interview – Once you have completed the first required steps, we will schedule a virtual interview which offers us a chance to learn about you and your interests, so we have a good understanding of what type of child to match you with. It takes approximately one hour.

Eligibility Confirmation - We conduct criminal background, driving history, and personal reference checks. Once all information is received by our office, we can determine your eligibility for participation, and we will let you know of our decision. This process can take several weeks.

Volunteer training - This training covers the responsibilities and expectations of Volunteers, and is crucial to being a successful Big!

Match Meeting - After a matching proposal has been confirmed, we will then set up a meeting between you, the matching and enrollment specialist, the child, and the child's parent/guardian. We will discuss agency ground rules, complete any remaining paperwork, and you will be able to start meeting with your Little!
