As a volunteer, you provide friendship by simply spending a few hours a month enjoying the activities you already like to do. And the best part is, it’s actually a lot of fun.
Your participation is customized to meet your time and geographic availability. We interview you to learn your interests. Our focus is to ensure a quality match; which in return provides both you and your Little Brother or Sister with a life-changing friendship.
