With summer nearly here, volunteers are needed for the “30 Bigs in 30 Days” campaign at the Heart of Illinois Big Brothers Big Sisters program.
Right now, they have 79 young people – they call “littles” – and 70 of them are boys – looking for a mentoring adult.
To get involved, you need to fill out an application.
“We ask for a one year commitment from both our Bigs and Littles. Although, we hope that the match will continue for a lot longer than a year. And from there, we just ask for 2-4 times a month for a couple of hours at a time, just going out into the community and doing things that both the big & little are interested in.” Sydney Daniels
Then, background checks and reference calls are made.
From there, here’s a snapshot of the commitment.
The campaign runs through the month of June.
To see if the program is right for you, a volunteer form can be found on hoibbbs.org.
