For more than 50 years, Big Brothers Big Sisters has been bringing a little magic into the everyday lives of children by matching them with adult volunteers in fun and rewarding relationships. We are very excited that you are considering being a volunteer with our agency.

Welcome to Big Brothers Big Sisters in the Heart of Michigan

It's All About Friendship

There are few things in a person's life that are more important than friendship. The importance of sharing concerns, ideas, interests or just time with someone makes life much richer and more fulfilling.

Big Brothers Big Sisters believes in the power of friendship in helping a child grow in a positive direction and finally blossom into a productive, caring adult.

Our Impact on Children

Bigs and Littles have fun together — and create memories that last a lifetime. We call it “Little moments … Big magic.” Research on our volunteer programs points to the powerful, positive, lasting impact Bigs have on children’s lives. Littles are:

» 52% less likely to skip school
» 46% less likely to begin using illegal drugs
» More likely to get along with their families and peers

Become a Big and watch "Little moments" turn into "Big magic"!

Child Safety - Our #1 Priority


The safety and well-being of the children we serve is Big Brothers Big Sisters' highest priority. Before making a match, our Enrollment and Matching Team carefully screens all volunteers to be sure we not only make a match that lasts, but that children are safe.

We focus on child safety by providing:

    • Thorough, professional screening.
    • Child Safety and child abuse prevention education programs for volunteers, parents and children.
    • Guidelines that establish appropriate boundaries and respect a child’s right to feel safe.
    • Ongoing BBBS Match Support contact with each party in the match. This helps provide up-to-date information about safety issues and early warnings of potential problems throughout the match relationship.

Each volunteer must complete a thorough screening process that includes:

    • Completion of a formal written application
    • Criminal history record check and a driver’s license record check
    • Personal References
    • In-person Interview
    • Home assessment

The BBBS Match Support Specialist maintains required consistent scheduled contacts with each member of the match party.
