- Background Check. Child safety is a top priority, making it necessary to review your records and make sure you’ll be a good fit
- References. You’ll need to provide at least two references who Big Brothers Big Sisters can talk with about you becoming a mentor.
- Matching. Big Brothers Big Sisters works hard to make just the right match between you and a Little Brother. In addition to shared interests and personality, much of it depends on your preferences and schedule. Because the right match is important, and depends on many factors, this last and final step may go quickly or take longer.
The decision to become a Big Brother is yours. It’s time to be a Brother to a Brother and “get back more than you give.”
