Volunteer in Other Ways
You don´t have to become a Big to make a difference to the children of Ocean County.
Join the volunteer committee, Friends of the Board / Volunteers in Action. Help BBBSOC support our mentoring programs through fundraising events and activities. Read more about this group below.
Do you have a couple hours a week and administrative skills? We could use help in our busy office.
Are you a person who shops locally and knows ´everyone´? We could use your help to obtain donations of goods and services to support our events and programs.
Do you have technical skills or a special hobby? We can put you to work for an hour or a day, and we frequently need assistance with office equipment and our building.
These are just a few of our volunteer needs and opportunities.
For more information please call Big Brothers Big Sisters office.
You will help us to make a difference in the lives of the children of Ocean County.
