Welcome to the Bigs page!  If you are currently a Big, thanks for volunteering with us. You are at the heart and soul of our success, changing the lives of the children we serve, for the better, forever.  

We hope this page will be helpful for you. Here you will find more information about our GoBig app, group outing opportunities (SMART outings), volunteer meetups, and volunteer trainings. With any questions, please contact your BBBS Program Manager! 

SMART Outings

Every month, BBBS of NYC is committed to providing at least one free-of-charge group outing, designed to help you work towards your Little's SMART goals and connect with other matches in our program. Supported directly by our Program Managers, these outings provide an opportunity to connect directly with the BBBS community in a fun and productive way. You can find out more information about SMART outings in our weekly newsletter! Contact your Program Manager to sign up! 

The GoBig App

Looking for an idea for your next outing? Want an easy way to track your progress on your SMART goals? Would you like to be able to journal your memories with your Little? Then take advantage of our free app developed specifically for Bigs in our program. Using your login and password, you have access to resources to help make your outings memorable.   

You can download the app in the Google Play store and the iTunes store.  

You can also access the app for your desktop here.

Volunteer Meetups

Volunteer Meetups offer the opportunity to meet and connect with other Bigs in the BBBS program, around a shared topic of interest. Stay tuned to our weekly newsletter for information about our next Volunteer Meetup!
