Home / Be a Big Brother—give a Little something back

REAL MEN MENTOR.

You have a big opportunity in front of you to not only impact a boy’s life today, but to transform their potential for tomorrow.


Go big.

We’re always looking for people eager to positively impact a child and improve their community at the same time. And, right now is no different. Big Brothers are in high demand.

For four hours a month, you can give a Little Brother the invaluable gift of your friendship. By simply changing his perspective of what the world can offer, you can literally start changing his life. And sometimes it’s as simple as playing video games, going to a museum, or just hanging out together.

Why do we need Big Brothers?
More than 70% of our children waiting for a Big are boys, but only 3 out of every 10 inquiries to volunteer come from men. Research shows that having the positive influence of a Big Brother makes a tangible difference in a boy’s life. So join the hundreds of thousands of volunteers that give a young person someone to look up to. And learn why so many are now saying, “I get back so much more than I give.”

A call to men of color.
Disproportionately the children we serve and those waiting to be matched are African-American and Hispanic boys. Their parents and guardians seek our support, knowing a Big Brother can recognize their boy’s potential and model positive choices that put him on the path for success in and out of school.

But don’t just take it from us. Check out some Real Life Stories of Bigs & Littles right here. And if you still have questions, head over to our Big Brother FAQs for more answers.
