All children should have a chance to thrive. Some kids need someone to help them along that path. Turns out doing something important can be incredibly simple. With children across Eastern Massachusetts waiting for a Big, there has never been a better time to volunteer as a mentor. It’ll be fun and rewarding. And our professionally trained staff will be there to support you every step of the way.

Who Can Be a Big?

Wondering if you have what it takes to be a mentor? The answer is yes! In order to apply to be a big, you must be over the age of 18 and able to commit a few hours a couple times a month for at least one year. The team at BBBS are happy to answer any questions you may have about becoming a Big.
