Big Sister and Little Sister

Join us as a defender of potential by becoming a Big Brother or Big Sister and together, we can change the world. All it takes is 4-8 hours a month, depending on the program, with a focus on being consistent and spending one-to-one quality time with your Little. Let’s clear a path to a child’s biggest possible future. Learn more about becoming a Big.

The first step is to attend a Big Orientation & Training session where you’ll learn about our programs, commitments, expectations and our kids.

Due to recent recommendations from the CDC to stay at home, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Tampa Bay has decided to cancel our in-person community Big Orientation & Trainings and host VIRTUAL Big Orientation & Trainings instead!
