Big Brothers Big Sisters of Middle Tennessee

The Big Brothers Big Sisters Mission is providing children facing adversity with strong and enduring, professionally supported one-to-one relationships that change their lives for the better, forever.

‘Being a Big Brother or Big Sister is one of the most enjoyable things you’ll ever do. Not to mention, one of the most fulfilling. The agency requires a one-year commitment, but most matches last for several years because the experience is so rewarding.

You have the opportunity to help shape a child’s future for the better by empowering them to achieve. And the best part is, it’s actually a lot of fun. You and your Little can share the kinds of activities you already like to do.

Play sports together. Go on a hike. Read books. Eat a pizza with extra anchovies. Or just give some advice and inspiration. Whatever it is you enjoy, odds are you’ll enjoy it even more with your Little—and you’ll be making a life-changing impact.’

Volunteering just a few hours a month with a child can start something amazing. Why not apply to be a Big today? There are kids out there ready to get started. Are you?
