Become a “Big” – Big Brothers Big Sisters Volunteer Opportunity for Rising Juniors

BBBS is now accepting applications. There are many local children eager to be matched with great Bigs!

If you are not familiar with the program, read on for more information:

Big Brothers Big Sisters, a national mentoring program, pairs junior students at Deerfield Academy in 1:1 “matches” with children from the local community. The “Bigs” and “Littles” spend time together here on campus every Friday evening: playing board games and drawing in the Parker room, eating in the dining hall, playing basketball in the gym, and throwing footballs and Frisbees around outside. It is a great way to help a child by providing the friendship and guidance of a positive role model, but mostly it is just a lot of fun!

If you are interested in becoming a Big, please complete the following Confidential Volunteer Application online by Friday, May 20, 2022. Big Brothers Big Sisters will contact you soon after to schedule an interview.

If you would like more information about the program, please contact Gaelen Chinnock at Big Brothers Big Sisters:
