It Takes Little to be Big

Give a Little Time
Do Something Big

Today, 1-in-3 kids in America grow up without a sustained adult mentor in their lives. In the Great Lakes Bay Region, 71 kids are waiting for their mentor right now, and some have waited over three years. Now is the time for you to join us and be a part of something Big.

While being a mentor is a Big deal, the truth is, it’s the little moments that make the biggest impact. A walk in the park, a slice of pizza together, a game of catch, a night in playing video games or crafting…these are the moments that make the biggest impact! Being a Big doesn’t require a specific title, degree or special qualifications. If you can be compassionate, patient and accepting, and can commit 2-3 hours a month, you have what it takes to be a Big.

Mentorship sounds huge, but the truth is, IT TAKES LITTLE TO BE BIG.

Join us today!

How It Works

  • Interested volunteers meet with Match Coordinators to learn about their interests and skills to make sure every match is right for both the Big and Little.
  • Throughout the friendship, Bigs assist Littles to build confidence and promote positive decision-making skills, and independence. Enhancing the self-esteem of a child can be a key building block in the development of their personality and overall approach to life.
  • All volunteers undergo a comprehensive background screening before being matched with a child (learn more about our commitment to child safety)
  • Match Coordinators stay in touch throughout the life of the match to help answer any questions or address concerns families or mentors might have.
  • If you can commit 2-3 times a month, you can change the life of a child through mentoring!
