Who Can Be A Big?
To qualify to be a Big,
you donít have to be an expert with kids or be a parent.
No experience is necessary to befriend an at-risk child
in your community. Littles benefit enormously simply
from getting to know and having fun with a caring adult.
In Kansas, more than
3,000 children are waiting for a mentor to positively
impact their lives. More than 70 percent of children on
the waiting list are boys, but only three out of every
10 inquiries to volunteer come from men. There is always
a special need for male volunteers. Baby Boomers,
minorities and retirees also make great volunteers! Your
valuable life experience and stability may be just what
a Little on our waiting list needs.
Everyone has something
to offer a Little. Being yourself will make all the
difference in the life of a child.
