Be a Big Brother Volunteer - Empower Potential

You have a big opportunity in front of you—to not only impact a child’s life today, but to transform their potential for tomorrow.

Go 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 Brother volunteers are in high demand. For a few hours, a couple 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 literally start changing their lives. And sometimes it’s as simple as playing video games, going to a museum, or just hanging out together.

Why do we need Big Brother Volunteers?

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.


Where's the Need?

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Broward County currently has 829 male children who are waiting to be matched to a volunteer mentor.

We only have 56 male volunteers to pair with the boys on our waiting list.
START SOMETHING today. Enroll as a Big Brother volunteer, recruit a friend, family or
co-worker and change a child’s life for the better, forever!

A call to men of color.
Disproportionately the children we serve and those waiting to be matched are African-American and Hispanic boys. Their parents seek our support, knowing a Big Brother can recognize their son’s potential and model positive choices that put him on the path for success in and out of school.
