High School Bigs
Activities enjoyed by all are attending school functions, ball games, plays, doing homework, work out at the Y, baking cookies, and more.
Volunteers should be at least a sophomore and 16 years of age with Drivers License.
2 high school students may be teamed together to be a “Big” to 1 child.
Community-based Mentoring is the traditional Big Brothers Big Sisters relationship. It’s all about one-on-one time spent with the volunteer and the young person doing things they enjoy — one hour a week filled with shared interests and activities like:
* Shooting hoops
* Playing a board game
* Sharing a pizza
* Taking a walk in the park
* Or just hanging out and talking.
The schedule can be flexible to meet the needs of mentors and young people in different kinds of situations. Some Bigs meet their Littles on the weekend or in the evening. Others get together with their Littles after school. There’s almost no one so busy that they can’t find a way to fit in a few hours a month.
