Expand your involvement.

We offer many ways to get connected to the Big Brothers Big Sisters mission. Additional involvement outside your commitment as a Big is completely voluntary, but it's a great way to meet more of the Big Brothers Big Sisters team and support life-changing matches like yours!

Bigs are our best ambassadors, so someone on our staff may contact you to help out at a volunteer recruitment activity, board meeting or donor event. You can also help us recruit much-needed Bigs and/or raise funds by getting your company, group or church involved. Contact your Match Support Specialist if you're interested in helping in any of these ways.

Big Supporters
We recognize our Bigs already give so much by donating their time, but we also offer volunteers other opportunities to support the mission they care so much about. Bigs are invited to participate in special events—like Bowl for Kids' Sake, the Golf Classic or the Biggest Little Tailgate Party—and/or make a financial donation. For more information about giving to Big Brothers Big Sisters, call 410-243-4000 or email
