Welcome to Big Brothers Big Sisters of Douglas County

Think Back in Your Life.

Remember the person who, though not a parent, took the time to listen or encourage you to do your best?  Having support and motivation from someone you looked up to didn’t just make you feel special, it made you the person you are today.


Now It's Your Turn.

  • “Bigs” are volunteers matched in a one-to-one friendship with a “Little.” 
  • Littles are kids age 5-17 with a need for some extra attention. 
  • Hang out once a week.
  • What you do is up to you!
  • We have approximately 100 kids on our waiting list. 
  • To assure a quality relationship, a one year commitment is required.


Get Involved.

Volunteer!  Become a mentor and be involved in a life-changing experience for an at-risk child.  You can change a child's world without changing yours.  It only takes a commitment of your time.


You always said you would do something meaningful someday. Volunteer Today.
