Requirements to Become a
Big Brother/Big Sister
There are two ways to volunteer with BBBS. In the community-based program Bigs take their Littles out to do activities they both enjoy--going to the park, playing sports, visiting the library, getting a bite to eat --simple activities that end up making a big difference. In our site-based program, Bigs visit with their Littles at an after-school program in Bryan where they help with homework, play in the gym or on the playground, do crafts, or just talk with their Littles.
Have the time:
Community-based Bigs get together with their Littles two to four times each month. These outings can take place at times and on days that work best for you, your Little and their family: afternoons or evenings, weekdays or weekends. Site-based Bigs visit their Littles once a week on Tuesdays or Wednesdays for an hour after school between 3:00 and 5:00.
We ask for a commitment of at least one year. Before committing to a match, consider if you will be experiencing any major life changes in the next year, such as graduation, new job or promotion, marriage, birth of a child, or moving. If so, it might be best to wait until after the change takes place so you will be better able to determine your ability to commit.
Meet the criteria:
Be at least 18 years old and out of high school. Hold a valid driver’s license and automobile insurance.
