Mission: Big Brothers Big Sisters of Tucson is committed to developing one-to-one, adult-to-child mentoring relationships guiding youth from a position of risk to one of achieving their highest potential.
Target demographics: children ages 6-17.
Programs: one-to-one, adult-to-child mentoring relationships designed to add healthy, positive role models to the life of a child. Adult mentors, age 18+, experience volunteerism & community involvement, while helping to strengthen personal assets in a child. Volunteer Big Brothers & Big Sisters spend 2+ hours, 2-3 times per month with their Little, enjoying everyday activities together. A minimum of a 1-year commitment to the match is required. All mentors undergo a thorough screening process including an application, in-depth interview, a criminal background check & reference check. All volunteers go through an orientation & continue to receive match support from BBBST. We currently have 110 Little Brothers on a waiting list ready to be matched with a Big Brother, so we are especially in need of male volunteers. Bilingual volunteers are also needed. If you have a heart for children, volunteer to be a Big Brother or Big Sister today at www.tucsonbigs.org/volunteer.
