Big Brothers Big Sisters Orientation & Training
Nov 28 @ 5:30 pm – 7:00 pm

Please consider becoming a Big Brother or Big Sister and help change the life of a child facing adversity for the better, forever. It doesn’t take a lot of time (between 4-8 hours a month, depending on the program). The real focus is on being consistent, and spending one-to-one quality time with your Little. Being a Big often means just including your Little in things you already like to do going to a ball game, or a museum, or the beach, or a bike ride. The first step is to attend one of our Big Orientation & Training sessions.

Big Orientation and Training

POLK COUNTY! Please join us on Saturday for an exciting orientation where you’ll learn the ins-and-outs of what it’s like being a Big and the role they play in helping area children in need.

Our mission here at Big Brothers Big Sisters of Tampa Bay is to provide children facing adversity with professionally supported, one-to-one mentoring relationships that will change their lives for the better, forever. These information sessions for potential volunteers are a required part of the application process in order to become a Big. These sessions allow everyone to gain a better understanding of what it means to volunteer with BBBS and ask any questions about the process. Come out and bring any family or friends that might also be interested in becoming a Big Brother or Big Sister!
