Get Involved

There are more ways to volunteer and support Big Brothers Big Sisters than one!

Non-Mentoring Volunteering

Becoming a Big isn’t the only way you can get involved. Show support for children in your community by volunteering at one of our many events.  With so many opportunities, you are sure to find one that matches your interests and busy schedule.

Join a Committee: Our Dream BIG Gala, Bowl For Kids’ Sake fundraiser, and Annual Picnic would not be possible without volunteers like you. Help organize one of these events by signing up to become a member of an event committee. As a committee member, you will get to sit in on monthly meetings, sort out logistics, and give input during the planning process.

Volunteer at an Event: For a short term commitment, sign up to be an event volunteer for the day. Help with greeting guests at registration or put your photography skills to work; events are an all hands on deck affair and we could always use an extra pair!

Get your Company Involved: Does your company sponsor events or host career development activities? Maybe you want your coworkers to learn more about becoming a Big? There a tons of ways for companies to engage with our agency, just give us a call!

Internships: Big Brothers Big Sisters also offers internships throughout the year. Internships are available in the areas of fund development, communications, and social work. Join our team to develop your professional skills while making a difference in the community.


No matter how much time or money you have, you are able to make a lifelong positive impact on a child’s life. For more information about any of these opportunities contact us at 608-661-5437 or reception@bbbsmadison.org.
