Volunteers Needed for Youth Rise: Stand Together Program

Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Capital Region is seeking direct impact volunteers from local area businesses for the Youth Rise: Stand Together mentoring program.

This is a unique chance for companies to help bridge the gaps in opportunity for youth and address barriers brought about by systemic racism.

Companies and organizations interested in participating, please contact Roe Braddy (rbraddy@capbigs.org) for additional details.


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. You have the opportunity to help shape a child’s future for the better by empowering him or her 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. So why not apply to be a Big today. There are kids out there ready to get started. Are you?

There are 21,000 boys ready and waiting to be matched with Big Brothers across the country right now … that’s double the number of girls waiting for a Big Sister. You can also make a donation to help fund the careful one-to-one matching and ongoing professional mentoring support unique to Big Brothers Big Sisters. Your gift will help match a child facing adversity with an adult mentor. The gift you make today will lead to successful outcomes for that child and his or her community.

Whether you get involved as a volunteer or as a donor, we welcome and thank you for your support!
