For more than 40 years, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Utah have helped children in the community combat early life challenges. It has quickly become one of the communities’ favorite volunteer opportunities in Utah! Spending your time and energy being a volunteer may help you feel useful in the community. You’ll have the opportunity to provide meaningful support to kids in difficult situations.
Here are 3 reasons BBBSU can benefit you, and others:
Reason 1: Growing Together
Volunteering for Big Brothers Big Sisters Utah allows you to come to meet and help vulnerable kids in their daily lives. As a mentor or “Big Brother or Big Sister”, you are able to teach children useful values for their future. Not only you’ll help them grow, but we can assure you they will make you grow too!
Reason 2: Increase Your Self Esteem
Volunteering will make you feel useful in your community and for the cause you have chosen to defend. In the best of circumstances, volunteering will boost your self-esteem as well as your confidence. It may even improve your overall health!
Reason 3: Enlarge Your Horizons
Being a volunteer means getting out of the daily routine. Our volunteer opportunities in Utah allow you to see the world differently, to open yourself while donating your time and your person to a cause that is important to you.
If you want to join, contact us at Big Brothers Big Sisters of Utah. Our “Littles” will be happy to welcome you and help you to become one of our Big Brothers and Big Sisters.
