As a school-based Big Brother, you will be a positive role model and mentor to a young person.  
Volunteers have visits with their "Little" on a consistent basis, usually once a week.  
Volunteers invest time and attention into a child who faces adversity, build a friendship with them, and develop trust and respect. This could mean playing games with them, engaging in a conversation about what's on their mind, playing in the gym or in the school yard, cooking and baking, or any other type of activity that will engage a child and draw out their personality and interests.
