Volunteering is fun, big time.
Being a Big Brother, Big Sister, a Big Couple or a Big Family 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.
For just a few hours a couple of times a month, you can help a child start something amazing. Big Brothers Big Sisters of Siouxland is different from other mentoring organizations in that we seek volunteers who are committed and consistent, willing to serve at least a year, but we hope until a child graduates school.
It’s what makes our programs successful, helping kids who face adversity beat the odds. Professional staff is here to work with you, the child and the family throughout the course of the mentoring relationship to provide necessary training and support. There are kids out there waiting for someone like you to be a part of their life.
