“To date, being a Big Sister allows me to be a friend. To bring joy to someone else simply by being available to share interests and ideas. It has provided me with opportunities to encourage my little to build up herself in certain areas.”
“I believe the greatest joy that one can experience in life, comes from serving others. Big Brothers Big Sisters provides that perfect opportunity, not only to be of service to a very grateful child, but to positively impact the life of a child and make a lifelong friend”.
“Big Brother/Big Sister is giving selflessly to your little one, treating them with dignity and respect; to also assist them in becoming the best they can be, to become productive members in the community.”
“To me, being a Big Brother means being a positive influence, role model, mentor and support to a young person, understanding that although there may not be a biological connection, the Little has someone they can look up to and rely on as a big brother as they grow.
It also means making a commitment to the community we serve through social investment in the next generation.”
“When I became a Big, I hoped that I would have an impact on my Little’s life but never expected her to impact my life the way she has. Being a Big has allowed me to become an origin for fun, a shoulder to lean and cry on through the tough times, a source of confidence and everlasting memories and a welcomed relief of reality sometimes. It’s one of the most rewarding things you can do in your life”.
“Initially I just thought, being a "Big" would be a nice thing to do, a fun way to give back... I never could've imagined how influential we would be in each other's lives. Seven years later, it would be hard to envision life without my little sis.”
