The Big Brothers Big Sisters Big Igniters is a passionate group of young professionals (age 22 – 39) who volunteer their time to support the mandate of the organization while building connections and having fun along the way.

Meeting monthly over some pizza, the committee supports the agency in three key ways:

  2. Driving brand awareness of Big Brothers Big Sisters through supporting the agencies marketing and promotional strategy.
  3. Assisting in the recruitment of volunteers and mentors needed for programming through leveraging personal and professional networks.

  • Attending the two Big Igniter led events each year and assisting in their planning and execution
