  • January is National Mentoring Month!

  • Celebrate National Mentoring month with Big Brothers Big Sisters by starting something Big! Being a Big Brother or Big Sister is one of the most enjoyable things you’ll ever do. Not to mention, one of the most fulfilling. You have the opportunity to help shape a child’s future for the better by empowering them to achieve a brighter future. And the best part is, it’s actually a lot of fun. You and your Little can share the kinds of activities you already like to do.

    Play sports together. Go on a hike. Read books. Eat a pizza with extra anchovies. Or just give some advice and inspiration. Whatever it is you enjoy, odds are you’ll enjoy them even more with your Little—and you’ll be making a life-changing impact.
