Be a Big Brother—give a Little something back

You have a big opportunity in front of you—to not only impact a child’s life today, but to transform their potential for tomorrow.

A Special Call to Men of Color

Disproportionately the children we serve and those ready and waiting to be matched are African-American boys. Their parents seek our support, knowing a Big Brother can recognize their son’s potential and model positive choices that put him on the path for success in and out of school. If you would like to help us fulfill this unique need, please contact our office at (843) 266-5232.

For a few hours, a couple times a month, you can give a Little the invaluable gift of your friendship. By simply changing their perspective of what the world can offer, you can literally start changing their lives. And sometimes it’s as simple as playing video games, going to a museum, or just hanging out together.

Why do we need Big Brothers?

More than 70% of our children waiting for a Big are boys, but only 3 out of every 10 inquiries to volunteer come from men. Research shows that having the positive influence of a Big Brother makes a real difference in a boy’s life. So join the hundreds of thousands of volunteers who give a young person someone to look up to. And learn why so many are now saying, “I get back so much more than I give.”
