Be A Big

Big Bro_pool
You’ve been thinking about getting involved. The process is easy and you know how much your help is needed. Why not apply to be a Big today?

We’re always looking for people eager to positively impact a child and improve their community at the same time. And, right now is no different. Big Brothers and Big Sisters are in high demand. So, Start Something.

For a few hours once a week you can give a Little the invaluable gift of your friendship. By simply changing their perspective of what the world can offer, you can literally start changing their lives. And sometimes it’s as simple as playing video games, going to a museum, or just hanging out together.

Requirements for Bigs:

  • Must be at least 18 years old.
  • Must have lived in the Winchester, Frederick, Clarke County region for at least 6 months.
  • Must have a valid driver’s license, vehicle insurance, reliable transportation and a clean driving record.
  • Must pass background checks including a criminal/sexual registry check and Child Protective Services check.
  • Must be able to commit to weekly visits with your Little for a minimum of 1 year.

How to apply – There are a few ways to get started!

1. There are different mentoring options available to you depending on your interests and availability.  Take a look at our TIME@School and CommunityTIME programs to find the right fit.

2. Fill out and submit this online inquiry form that will give us some basic information about you. This is NOT a full application. A BBBS staffer will call you to set up an appointment to come to the office to fill out the application, background checks and will complete an interview.

3. Call us. Give one of our staff a call at 540-662-1043 during regular business hours. They’ll answer any questions you have as well as take your information in order to schedule an interview.

Have a question?

Don’t worry. Our trained staff will be happy to guide you through the application process. And when it’s time to make a match we’ll help you meet a Little in your area who shares your interests — and we’ll support you all the way. We’ll even give you some great ideas for activities that other Bigs and Littles have enjoyed through the years!
