Be a Big 

Deciding to become a mentor is one of the most rewarding things you may ever do.  Spending a few hours every month with a child, doing things you already enjoy, can make a significant difference in the life of your Little.  Play sports together. Go on a hike. Read books. Eat a pizza with extra anchovies. Or just give some advice and inspiration.  For a few hours each week, you can give a child the priceless gift of friendship.  By simply changing a child’s perspective on what the world can offer, you can literally change a life.

We have children waiting for the opportunity to meet someone like you.  If you have been thinking about getting involved, now is the time to find out more.
