Host or Sponsor an Activity
Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Ocean State provides free/low cost monthly activities open to all matches. We are always looking for engaging opportunities for our Bigs/Littles. Thank you for your interest in volunteering your time to support our organization. We recognize mentoring is not for everyone. You can help in these ways:
Teach or share a skill/talent: Do you have a special talent or skill you would like to teach or present to a group of Bigs and Littles? In the past, volunteers have led art sessions, hosted athletic clinics, invited Bigs/Littles to their workplace for a tour and taught about different animals. Our Littles would love to learn what you know.
Host an activity: Many groups like to plan an activity, like a special tour of their workplace. This is great for employee groups because it allows more employees to get involved in the planning and execution. It’s rewarding for Bigs and Littles because the girls are exposed to different careers.
Sponsor an activity: Sponsor Our Agency Events – To engage, support and recognize our volunteers, children and friends we offer a variety of events and activities. Many of these activities help us foster the mentoring relationship between Bigs and Littles. All are available for sponsor support.
