Volunteering at Big Brothers Big Sisters means empowering the future—both of an individual child and of the community. The positive impact you make in a child’s life today could transform their tomorrow. So if you are looking for volunteer opportunities in Utah, here is what to expect with BBBSU.
When you volunteer to be a Big, you are carefully matched with a Little based on both of your needs, personality, interests, and goals. So don’t think you’ll have to give up your favorite hobbies and pastimes to volunteer. Those interests can be key in impact a child’s life and can carry more meaning for you as you involve your Little.
When we lift others, we lift ourselves. At BBBS we ignite potential. And not only in the lives of children, but in the lives of mentors as well. Your unique skills and experiences may be just what a child needs to overcome their own challenges. And that, in turn, brings meaning and connection.
You won’t be going it alone. We make sure our Bigs have training and ongoing support. And as a volunteer, you are a part of a team consisting of the Little, their parent or guardian, and one of our Match Support Specialists. This team works together to identify problems, come up with solutions, and connect the family with essential services to best help the child succeed.
As humans, we crave connection. It fosters growth. This is what makes BBBSU unique among volunteer opportunities in Utah. We focus on positive mentoring relationships that open doors for the future.
