Volunteer Together: Be a Big Duo

WHAT IS A BIG DUO & WHAT DO THEY DO?

A Big Duo is a pair of volunteer mentors who choose to be Bigs together. They are typically matched with one child ("Little"), or could be paired with two Littles who are siblings. The duo and the Little get together 2 to 4 times each month to hang out, do something they all enjoy, and have fun! You can do things like go the park together, have dinner, ride bikes together, attend a festival... the possibilities are endless! It's all about forming a positive, encouraging friendship with the Little.

WHO CAN BE A BIG DUO?

Adults (18 or older) who are couples, friends, coworkers, or adult family members can volunteer together as Bigs. Each individual in the duo must apply and go through the BBBS enrollment process to become Bigs. Big Duos should have a long-standing and/or committed relationship with each other in order to volunteer.

WHY BECOME A BIG DUO?

Because volunteering together can be even more fun and meaningful (and easier!) than volunteering alone. You'll be sharing in a service opportunity that makes a BIG difference in the life of a child, and you'll be doing it on your schedule. What's especially convenient about being a Big Duo is that one or both of you can get together with your Little at a time, so it makes for a convenient way to empower the potential of a local child!
