Approximately 40 children and teens in our Big/Little programs, and a roughly equal number of adults with disabilities in Friend 2 Friend, are waiting on a right-fit match. In the matching process, we take into account not only factors like a child’s geography vis-à-vis a volunteer’s but also his preference for a Big Brother who likes theater or a Big Sister who plays sports. That is, not every qualified volunteer is a right fit for a participant on the current wait list, so we’re always, always seeking an overflow of qualified, committed volunteers of all stripes to join us!
“I was seeking a way to donate my time and also reconnect with my Judaism. I love that this is a way to directly impact a person’s life and also enrich mine with a new experience” – A new volunteer to JBBBS
