Being a Big is a fun and rewarding experience!

By giving just 8-12 hours of your time each month to a local child, you can help realize their potential.

 
BBBSNC staff matches Big Brothers and Sisters with Little Brothers and Sisters who have similar interests and compatible schedules. It's up to each match to decide when to get together and what to do. Some matches enjoy sharing outdoor activities like riding bikes, hiking, and going to the beach while others prefer to stay in and bake cookies, watch movies, or play video games. Every match is provided ongoing support and supervision by an Enrollment/Match Support Specialist. Bigs can count on the Enrollment/Match Support Specialist for positive feedback, activity ideas, and conflict resolution.

Successful mentoring is pretty simple:
Be available,
show you care,
Have fun!

 
Community-Based Mentoring is great for volunteers who:  
are patient, open-minded and active,
like spending time with kids and teens,
have a car they can use to get around,
and have skills and hobbies they would like to share with a child.
