For just a few hours a couple times a month, you can help a child succeed. Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Capital Region is different from other mentoring organizations in that we seek volunteers who are committed and consistent, willing to serve at least a year, but we hope until a child graduates high school. It’s what makes our programs successful, helping kids who face adversity beat the odds.
Professional staff are there to work with you, the child and the family throughout the course of the mentoring relationship to provide necessary training and support. Funding allows us to carefully make and support more matches.
Sometimes, the supply of volunteers and kids is greater than the necessary agency funding. We are grateful for your willingness to be involved and while it is certainly not a requirement, we welcome you to also become a donor – as you volunteer or wait to be matched.
Orientations act as information sessions to help determine whether being a Big Brother or Big Sister is right for you. These sessions do not require you to make any commitment, but are a good way to see if you are ready to start something.
Orientations are currently being conducted over the phone. For more information, please contact Cassandra at 717.236.0199 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
