There are many ways to get involved – from volunteering as a mentor, serving as a trustee on a governance board, donating, helping organise activities for the children and young people, or organising fundraising events.
Be a Big Brother or Big Sister
Volunteering is fun! If you like to have fun—and really, who doesn’t?—then being a Big Brother or Big Sister is one of the most enjoyable and rewarding things you’ll ever do. As a Mentor, you get to be a kid again for a couple of hours every month. All you have to do is be a friend to one of our fun-loving kids. Being a Big Brother or Big Sister is simple, too. You and your “Little Brother” or “Little Sister” can do things that you already enjoy doing, such as:
- kicking a ball around
- taking a walk on the beach
- playing a board game
- hanging out, eating and talking
- going to the movies and throwing popcorn at the screen (okay, maybe not that second part).
It is more fun than you realise and flexible enough to fit your schedule.
Are you thinking about getting involved as a mentor? Or would you like more information first? Either way, it’s just a few simple steps.
