Big Brothers Big Sisters of Flagstaff — Thinking about Mentoring? Join our weekly Wednesday volunteer info sessions to learn more

Happy Wednesday to you.

We’d like to invite you to one of our virtual volunteer info sessions today at 12:00 PM or 5:30 PM.

Info sessions are a great time to learn more about our programs and how you can become a Big to a Little in the community! 

Being a Big Brother or Big Sister is one of the most enjoyable and fulfilling things you’ll ever do.

Bigs and Littles do simple things together virtually and potentially in person-playing sports, cooking, going over schoolwork, taking walks, volunteering in their communities, or just hanging out together.

We hope to see you soon! If you can’t join today – no worries because we host these every Wednesday!

We are excited to announce we have partnered with the Coconino Coalition for Children & Youth to offer you training on Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACES).

The effects of childhood trauma play out both personally for individuals, but also, have tremendous costs for society.  There is much that society needs to acknowledge about the inequitable experiences of our community members, but also, there is much that all of us can do to mitigate these outcomes such as being a mentor. 

This introductory training will give you foundational knowledge on ACEs as a volunteer working within the community and how you can build resilience within the youth you mentor.
