More than 70 percent of all children waiting for a Big Brother are boys, but only 30 percent of volunteer inquiries come from men. Consequently, BBBS frequently encourages men of all ages to consider taking on a Little.

For just a few hours of volunteer work per month, a Big Brother can be a trusted friend and role model. Parents in the area often seek the support of BBBS mentors who can help their sons make healthy life choices and learn how to succeed in the classroom. Although BBBS welcomes all Big Brothers to its ranks, it has expressed a particular need for men of color to mentor Hispanic and African-American boys, which represent the majority of children served.
