Be a Volunteer

Change a life just by being you.

Every child has a future. Every child has dreams. What were your dreams when you were a child? Did you ever face any obstacles or fears? We all did. And in that lies the reason why Big Brothers Big Sisters Amachi Ohio is such a successful program. It's because caring adult volunteers understand the dreams of a child and wish to make them a reality. They do it simply by becoming an additional consistent, positive force in a child's life. It's simple. You just have to be you!

Why volunteer?
