Who is standing by your side? Mom? Dad? An older brother or sister?
We will match you with a child in need of your guidance and support- to play together, to talk or to just hang out.
We believe that volunteer work should coincide with your life and schedule in order to enable you to wholeheartedly give back without giving something up in the long run. That is why the encounters take place weekly for two hours each time. The long term accumulated benefits will surprise you…
All through your Journey volunteering with us, we will be there for you, for every question or request.
The Big Brother Big Sister organization has been around for over 100 years worldwide. Tens of-thousands of children were matched with Big Brothers and Sisters who have helped them make a change in their lives. Although we all follow the same principles, no two matches are the same. You and your Little Brother or Sister will create your own special connection in your way.
