The Big Brothers Big Sisters Big Igniters is a passionate group of individuals from an array of backgrounds 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:

  1. By developing funds for programming through the execution of 2 marquee events each year.
  2. Driving brand awareness of Big Brothers Big Sisters through supporting the agencies marketing and promotional strategy.
  3. Leveraging person and professional networks to aid in in the recruitment of volunteers and mentors needed for programming as well as for other agency fundraising events.

Each year we seek 8-12 individuals from an array of backgrounds to formulate the committee. As a member, your commitment would include:

  • Attending at least 70% of the monthly meetings
  • Assist in the planning & execution of two Big Igniters led events each year
  • Attend the two Big Igniters led events
  • Be comfortable spreading the word within your personal and professional networks about Big Brothers Big Sisters, their events and the amazing work they do in the community
  • Have a passion for building a brighter future for the next generation
