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!
