Doing good is a beautiful thing. As a Big Sister, you can give a girl an opportunity to see beyond her everyday world and dream big. It’s good for your Little, as well as your community. And it can start with simply letting her enjoy the things you already love to do, but can grow into something bigger.
For just a few hours, a couple times a month, you can give a Little the invaluable gift of your friendship. By simply changing her perspective of what the world can offer, you can literally start changing her life. Play a board game. Make fun crafts. Hit the playground together. Just as your options are unlimited, so is your Little’s potential.
But don’t just take it from us. Go to our Real Life Stories of Bigs and Littles page for some amazing stories of what it means to be a role model. And if you still have questions, head over to our Big Sister FAQs for more answers.
