Be A Big Family or Big Couple!

We’re always looking for people eager to make a positive impact on a child and improve their community at the same time. Being a Big Couple or part of the Big Family program is one way you can make a difference without sacrificing time with your spouse, partner, or kids! We have lots of Little’s waiting for a Big Couple or a Big Family!

For 2 hours, 2 times per month, you can give a Little the invaluable gift of your time. By simply changing their perspective of what the world can offer, you can literally start changing their lives. Movies, sporting events, and grilling out are all fun activities that a Big Couples and Big Families can do with their Little.

Big Couple

As a Big Couple through Big Brothers Big Sisters, you and your spouse can both become Bigs to a child (Little) in our program . You can all do things together and/or you can each share time with the Little individually. This is a great way to spend time together while also changing the life of a child. And, the child benefits from having a Big Brother and a Big Sister!

Big Family

As a Big Family, your entire family is involved in a match to a Little. That means your spouse and kids can all share time with a Little in our program. By including the Little in the things that your family already does together, that Little will get to experience the dynamics, experiences and fun involved in a traditional family atmosphere. By including a child in the busy life your family is already living, you can make a huge impact in their self esteem, hopes and future dreams.

All Big’s attend a required orientation- this gives them additional insight about our program and the children we serve. Big’s and Little’s are then interviewed to determine personalities, preferences, and interests. After this is completed we:

  • Conduct a background check
  • Contact your references
  • Have a professional staff guide you step by step.


Once we find a Little for you, you then:

  • Meet your little and their family with a trained agency staff member.
  • Receive mentor training.
  • Meet your match support specialist.
  • Connect with our Big Community.
