Volunteer to start something

What if every child fulfilled their potential? Think how amazing that would be. You can start a Little on the path to big things.


Volunteering is fun, big time.

Right now, kids in the Twin Cities are waiting for mentors. One of them is waiting for you.

As a Big Brother or a Big Sister, you can be a trusted friend to a child, and you will create memories that last a lifetime. It will be one of the most enjoyable and fulfilling things you ever do.

You have the opportunity to help shape a child's future, by empowering them to achieve. And the best part is, it's actually a lot of fun. Play sports together. Go on a hike. Read books. Eat a pizza with extra anchovies. Or just hang out and talk. Whatever it is you enjoy, odds are you'll enjoy them even more with your Little - and you'll be making a life-changing impact. 

As you think about becoming a Big, please consider the following criteria:

Community-Based Mentoring

  1. Be at least 19 years old
  2. Commit to at least one full year of mentoring. Through research, we found one year is the minimum target time frame for these relationships to have a lasting impact, but we hope yours lasts much longer!
  3. Agree to see your Little two to four times every month
  4. Own a car and be willing to drive to pick up a child from their home

Site-Based Mentoring

  1. Be in high school or an adult
  2. Commit to one full year
  3. Commit to 1 hour per week with your Little
