Big Brothers Big Sisters of Southwestern Illinois

At Big Brothers Big Sisters of Southwestern Illinois, Volunteering is Fun - Big Time.

Being a Big Brother or Big Sister is one of the most enjoyable and fulfilling things you’ll ever do. You can 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.  We’re always looking for people eager to positively impact a child and improve their community at the same time. And, right now is no different. For a few hours, a couple times a month, you can give a Little the invaluable gift of your friendship. By simply changing their perspective of what the world can offer, you can literally start changing their lives. And sometimes it’s as simple as playing video games, going to a museum, or just hanging out together.

Big Brothers are especially in high demand.  More than 70% of our children waiting for a Big are boys, but only 3 out of every 10 inquiries to volunteer come from men. Research shows that having the positive influence of a Big Brother makes a real difference in a boy's life. So join the hundreds of thousands of volunteers that give a young person someone to look up to. And learn why so many are now saying, “I get back so much more than I give.”

If you're not ready to commit to becoming a Big, but still want to be involved we have many ways you can do so! Whether it's hosting a book drive or a school supply drive, serving on our one of our Event Committees, adopting a family during the holidays, or supporting us in some other way we look forward to hearing from you. Ready to help out?  Visit us at www.bbbsil.org or call (618) 398-3162 and start something today!
