Passionate and committed defenders of potential

Big Brothers Big Sisters is a volunteer lead organization.  Hundreds dedicate their time and talent to make our organization a success!  They go to great lengths to help children in our program, even if that means rappelling off a perfectly well constructed 12 story building!!!
