Become a Big
Start Something for a Child!
Are you ready to volunteer with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Mid-Maine and Change the Life of a Child?
For just a few hours a week, you can give a Little the invaluable gift of friendship and help change their life. It’s as simple as hanging out, doing things that you already love to do. The interview process for both Bigs and Littles gathers important information about your similar interests so that we can successfully match you with a Little who likes to do the same things you do!
Start here with our simple online inquiry.
After completing the online inquiry, a member of our team will contact you to discuss the next steps:
Step 1: Completing an application, including providing references
Step 2: Participating in an in-person interview
Step 3: Passing background checks
Step 4: If accepted, participating in an orientation session
Start Something for a child today. Become a Big Brother or Big Sister!
