There are many places to volunteer at Big Brothers Big Sisters!

Activity Buddy

When BBBS holds group activities, we invite all the children in the program. From time to time a Big Brother or Big Sister can’t attend or the child is on our waiting list and is not yet matched with a permanent Big. We would love to have a pool of screened adults who can spend a couple hours at an event with a Little Brother or Little Sister. Buddies are screened at the same level as our regular mentors, but pinch hit when needed. It’s a great way to help, without the long-term commitment. It’s also a great way to determine if being a Big is the right volunteer position for you!

Special Events Volunteer

Our events could not happen without our fabulous volunteers. Since 2013 we have partnered with the City of Winchester and Full Circle Marketing to produce the Friday Night Live Series, Rockin’ Independence Eve and the OktoberFest. These events require a large number of volunteers in various roles. In addition, we have other fundraising events such as our Bowl for Kids’ Sake, Christmas Party and quarterly activities for the matches.
Sign up to serve as a special events volunteer and receive periodic event emails. As a special event volunteer, you have the opportunity to choose the events and times that work best for you. Tasks vary from event to event, but there are a number of volunteer opportunities including greeting event attendees, assisting with silent and live auctions, helping with setup and break down of events and more.
