Big for a Day

Have you thought about being a mentor, but you’re not sure you have what it takes?  Not certain if you are ready to jump in with both feet?  Consider being a “Big for a Day”.  It’s the perfect solution!

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Fond du Lac County provides fun-filled activities once a month for our ready-to-be-matched (RTBM) children.  RTBM children are kids enrolled in our program but waiting for a mentor.  Our monthly activities give our waiting kids a chance to participate, providing them with a new community experience each month.  With over 70 kids on the wait list, the need for “Big for a Day” volunteers is significant.

In order for our “Big for a Day” event to run smoothly, we need YOU to volunteer a couple of hours of your time.  All you need to do is show up and hang out with a child during the scheduled activity.  It’s a win-win for everyone involved and you make a BIG difference!

Besides, you don’t have to volunteer alone.  Do you have a friend or family member that would like to get involved?  Or, do you have a club, business or organization that is looking for service opportunities in the community?  Your organization could participate in a scheduled “Big for a Day” event or could put together one of your own.  Last year we partnered with Grande Cheese Company to make homemade pizzas and Morning Rotary/Mid-States Aluminum to make solar lights for underdeveloped countries.  Being a “Big for a Day” is a great way to give back while making a positive impact on area youth.  Whether you are interested in participating as an individual or a group, we encourage you to get involved!
