Start Something Big
Do you have 4 to 6 hours per month to give back? To make the difference in the life of a child? Individually? As a couple? As a family?
Big Brothers Big Sisters of Fond du Lac County has developed a variety of programs to fit the diverse lifestyles of our volunteers. We pride ourselves in forming healthy one-to-one relationships between children (Littles) and positive role models (Bigs).
Choose from any of the options below and get involved today!
Our Traditional Match (Big Brother or Big Sister) Community Based program matches a Little one-to-one with a Big. The match spends a few hours per month together doing everyday activities that they plan together. The initial commitment is for one year; however, the ultimate goal is for the match to develop into a lifelong friendship. A Community Based Big Brother or Big Sister must be at least 18 years old, have reliable transportation with auto insurance and meet all Big Brothers Big Sisters guidelines.
Our Big Couple Match provides a unique opportunity for married couples. It’s a community-based match very similar to that of the one-to-one program, except that the couples are matched together with one Little. If they can hang out with a Little as a couple, that’s great. If one spouse is particularly busy one week, then the other can hang with the Little individually. The Little benefits not only from adding two new caring people into his or her life, but they also get to see first-hand how two adults interact in a healthy, loving relationship.
Our Big Family Match was developed for Bigs who would like to include their family in the match experience. Having the same standards as a traditional match, all adults must go through the enrollment process and comply with all Big Brothers Big Sisters guidelines.
