Become a Big Buddy — and Make a Big Impact!

Becoming a Big Buddy is one of the most enjoyable things you’ll ever do.  And, it’s a fulfilling way to give back to the community.  You have the opportunity to make an impact on a child’s life and shape their future for the better by giving your time, talents, energy and commitment.  The relationships formed between our Big and Little Buddies are what make our programs so special.  And the best part is, being a Big Buddy is actually a lot of fun.  We match Big and Little Buddies according to their interests so you can share the activities you already like to do.

Real life stories: Watch this video to hear from current Big Buddies about the rewards of being a mentor.

Play sports together.  Go on a hike.  Learn to cook, fly-fish or paint at a Buddy Program sponsored activity.  Or, just chat and connect over a milkshake.  Chances are that whatever you enjoy doing, you will enjoy it even more with your Little Buddy – and, you’ll be making a big impact on his or her life.
