Finding suitable holiday activities for you and your Big Brothers Big Sisters of Utah mentee can be an excellent way to celebrate this time of year. Holiday activities can be fun and engaging, plus help you, and you’re little ones find the best volunteer opportunities in Utah. 

Here are some holiday activities that the community can participate in:

Spread Cheer Through Service

Arrange a visit to a local hospice, nursing home, or assisted living center to visit residents and bring cheer. Some elderly community members may not have very many people to spend the holidays with and may enjoy a visit from you and your mentee. The two of you can bake cookies together and deliver them to an area facility. Visiting people in long-term care homes is an excellent volunteer opportunity in Utah.

See a Holiday Performance

Experience the magic of the Nutcracker Suite Ballet or watch a local Christmas parade or play. Many local dance studios will have ballet performances that you can buy tickets for or an area high school may have an orchestra, choral, or drama club performance. Supporting local events is a great way to be part of your community.

Play in the Snow

Playing in the snow can range from sledding to ice skating, or to finding a large open field and building a snowman. You may be able to pair up with another Big Brothers Big Sisters of Utah match for a snowball fight or to create the ultimate snow sculpture winter wonderland.

Become a Mentor
