Getting your child a Big Brother or Big Sister is giving your child the gift of friendship. Parents and guardians are an integral part of the Big Brothers Big Sisters match at every step of the process. Not only will you provide information about your child’s strengths and needs, you will also approve the selection of the Big Brother or Big Sister when the time comes.
Your child’s safety is important to us! We focus heavily on the quality and integrity of our volunteers by:
- Completing a national criminal background check
- Gathering information from at least three references
- Verifying a valid driver’s license and auto insurance
- Completing an in-person interview
