How to get involved/application guidelines and procedures: 

Becoming a Big takes just a few steps You: -Complete and submit the on-line application – we’ll contact you when we receive it -Submit names of references -Join us for a face to face interview (it’s helpful if you bring answers to the pre-interview questionnaire with you) We: -Review your application and references – we also do a background check -Get to know you, your background, interests and hobbies better in a 60-90 minute interview -Consider how well your skills and interests match those of youth on our waiting list and talk to both you and the family about this potential friendship -Set a date for you and the youth to meet, accompanied by an agency staff member. The process to qualify as a Big takes a few weeks: the time before you’re matched with a Little depends on how many youth living in your area and sharing your interests are waiting for Bigs.

Me? A Big Brother or Big Sister? Yes, you! It's really simple. All you need to do is have fun with a great kid doing stuff you already do (or want to do) like: play video games, play sports, enjoy free tickets to events, wash your car, go hiking, or watch TV. Whatever. You decide!
