The safety of your child is your highest priority. It’s no different at Big Brothers Big Sisters. Making the best possible match between Little and Big is critical to the growth and development of a child. But before we begin the matching process, we start by thoroughly screening potential Bigs.

Big Brothers Big Sisters National Standards of Excellence require each volunteer to complete an extensive screening process that includes:

  • +Completion of a formal written application
  • +Background and reference checks
  • +An in-person interview
  • +An orientation and training process that outlines the individualized needs of your child and provides information and resources on how to encourage your child’s development

Big Brothers Big Sisters also provides child safety tips to you and your child, and we welcome your questions and feedback. Throughout the life of the match, our professional staff will be in ongoing communication with you, your child, and your child’s Big. It’s the best way to build a strong relationship that will have the greatest impact on your child’s future success.


Whether you get involved with big brothers big sisters as a donor, potential big brother or big sister, partner, advocate, or family member, you have the power to change a child’s future for the better.
