What is a Big?

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. Big Brothers especially are in high demand.

For a few hours, a couple of 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 start changing their life. Play a board game, make fun crafts, or hit the playground together. Just as your options are unlimited, so is your Little's potential.

Ready to be a Big? Just fill out our application to get started! After you complete it, a Big Brothers Big Sisters staff member will contact you shortly. So many of our Bigs tell us that becoming a Big was the best decision they ever made. So, what are you waiting for?


Know Someone Who Would Make a Great Big Brother? 

At BBBS Lincoln, we're always looking for more men to be mentors. We have boys ready and waiting for a match with a role model. So tell the guys you know to sign up and become Bigs. They can do all the fun things they love to do already, like see movies, play video games, and go hiking, only now they get to enjoy it with a young person who can truly benefit from it.

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 who give young people someone to look up to!
