Become a Big
Mentoring a child through Big Brothers Big Sisters of Hampshire County is a fun and meaningful volunteer experience in your community. All it takes is spending a few hours a week with a young person, doing things you both enjoy. What better way to have a positive impact in your community than by PLAYING! Our ‘Bigs’ and ‘Littles’ enjoy activities together like playing catch, making crafts, hiking, playing board games, fishing, cooking, going to movies, bike riding, and more! In addition, we offer free opportunities to attend cultural and athletic events throughout Western MA. Throughout your match, you’ll have the support of a dedicated BBBS staff member who will provide guidance and fun activity ideas for you and your Little to try.
There are nearly 200 children in Hampshire County currently waiting to be matched with someone like YOU!
What’s the process?
Attend a Big Brothers Big Sisters information session (locations in either Northampton or Amherst) to learn about the program and see if it’s a good fit for you. Volunteers must be 18 or older, have access to a reliable vehicle, and commit to one year in the program. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or (413) 259-3345 to learn more!
