Volunteer your time

There are a few ways that you can volunteer your time with our agency and help make a difference in the lives of local children.

Become a Mentor

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. 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.

Important Note About Becoming a Big

Big Brothers Big Sisters strives for stable, long lasting one-to-one relationships for the youth we serve. Due to this, we will not sign off on community service hours for college students until you have completed the required commitment of one school year.


Event Volunteer, Internship/Work Study

We have two annual fundraising events where we welcome volunteers!  Bowl For Kids' Sake is in May and the Big Bash is in August.  

Big Brothers Big Sisters also offers different types of internships. The majority are with our Director of Corporate Events, but occasionally we have an opening for a program internship; however, you will not have any direct contact with the youth that we serve.

Please contact Amy Brooks at amy@bbbsbigbend.org for event volunteer opportunities.
