Be a BIG Sister

Be a Big Sister—help a Little go a long way.  This is your chance to start something big. As a Big Sister, you can help impact the life of a child for the better. Great things can happen, no matter how little they start.

Bigs start something beautiful.

Match2Doing good is a beautiful thing. As a Big Sister, you can give a girl an opportunity to see beyond her everyday world and dream big. It’s good for your Little, as well as your community. And it can start with simply letting her enjoy the things you already love to do, but can grow into something bigger.

For just a few hours, a couple times a month, you can give a Little the invaluable gift of your friendship. By simply changing their perspective of what the world can offer, you can literally start changing their lives. Play a board game. Make fun crafts. Hit the playground together. Just as your options are unlimited, so is your Little’s potential.

Ready to be a Big Sister? Just fill out our simple online volunteer inquiry. After you complete it, a Big Brothers Big Sisters staff member will contact you shortly. You’ll need to:

  • provide references
  • participate in an in-person interview
  • go through a background check

For more information about being a Big, please contact our Inquiry and Customer Service Team, at program@nbbbs.org or 860-525-5437 x117.

Know someone who’d be a great Big Sister?
At Big Brothers Big Sisters, we’re always looking for more women to be mentors. Fact is, we have girls ready and waiting to be matched with a role model. So tell the ladies you know to sign up to become Bigs. They can do all the fun things they love to do already, like crafting, going to the theater, even simply going for a walk—only now they’d get to enjoy it with a child who can truly benefit from it.
