We are always looking for new and engaging opportunities for our Bigs and Littles. We are grateful for your interest in volunteering to support our organization. We recognize mentoring is not for everyone, but there are still ways you can help:
Teach or share a skill/talent:
Do you have a special talent or skill you would like to teach or present to a group of Bigs and Littles? In the past, volunteers have led art sessions, hosted athletic clinics, and hands on informational animal talks. Our Littles would love to learn what you know.
Host An Activity
Many groups like to plan an activity, like a special tour of their workplace. This is a great way for your workplace to give back to the community and impact the lives of children who face adversity. It’s rewarding for both Bigs and Littles, and helps expose children to different jobs and career opportunities.
We could not achieve our mission of serving children without the generosity of our sponsors who provide us with the funds, goods and services that make it possible for us to bring professionally-supported friendships to children in need. We are grateful to them all. We are currently looking for sponsors to help us with the following events:
- Big Impact School Luncheon
- Bowl for Kids’ Sake
Sponsor An Agency Event
In order to recognize, engage and support our partners, volunteers, and children we offer a variety of events and activities. Many of these events help us foster the mentoring relationship between Bigs and Littles. All are available for sponsor support.
- Annual Volunteer Recognition Event
- Graduation/End-of-School-Year Celebration
BBBSRI gladly accepts in-kind donations such as:
- Tickets to sporting, cultural, and recreational events like zoos or museums that helps expose our children to experiences they wouldn’t normally get to enjoy.
