When you were growing up who was that special person that always made you feel important, always listened to what you had to say and most importantly, helped to shape the person you are today?

Now imagine never having that relationship. At Yavapai Big Brothers Big Sisters there are over 400 kids on the waiting list for someone like you to become their Big Brother or Big Sister.

Most of the kids in our program are raised by a single parent or by their grandparents. It doesn’t take much at all, no money, no special qualities, just a few hours a month is all it takes.
