VOLUNTEER

MAKE A BIG IMPACT. VOLUNTEER TODAY.

 

Being a Big Brother or Big Sister is one of the most fulfilling ways to give back to your local community and a great volunteer opportunity in Dane County, Wisconsin. You have the opportunity to help shape a child’s future for the better by empowering them to achieve their full potential. The best part is, it’s actually a lot of fun.

Our Big Brothers, Big Sisters, Big Couples, and Big Families are everyday people just like you. You and your Little can share the kinds of activities you already like to do and learn how to do new things together. Play sports together. Go on a hike. Read books. Eat a pizza. Or simply just give some advice and inspiration. Whatever it is you enjoy, odds are you’ll enjoy them even more with your Little! Not only will you make a life-changing impact, but your life will be changed too.

(While girls and boys across the county are waiting to be matched, there are thousands of boys in particular who are ready and waiting to be matched with Big Brothers right now. There are more than twice as many boys on our waiting lists than girls.)
