SO MEN, ARE YOU UP FOR CHALLENGE?

GOT QUESTIONS? GOOD THING WE HAVE ANSWERS.

Would you make a good Big?

What we look for in a Big are personal characteristics, not professional credentials. Your economic, educational, or ethnic backgrounds are not a consideration. The ideal candidate for a Big would be someone who is stable, responsible, mature, and patient with a good sense of humor. You must be 17 years of age or older and you must be prepared to dedicate one-to-one time with your Little every month for at least one year.

What does a Big do?

A Big is a positive adult mentor who provides his Little with support, friendship, and positive life examples. A Big is not Santa Claus, a parent, a social worker, or a babysitter. A Big is someone who cares about kids and wants to make a positive impact on someone’s life. You and your new sidekick will do whatever it is that you normally do.

How much time does being a Big require?

Bigs meet with their Littles at least twice a month for a minimum of one year. One year may sound like a long time, but just think: you and your wood chopping man beard will be making a lot of impact with just a little of your time.
