Nominations now open for Bigs of the Year

Every year, Big Brothers Big Sisters of South Texas recognizes two outstanding volunteers – a Big Brother of the Year and a Big Sister of the Year. The two mentors recognized are amongst our thousands of inspiring volunteers who are committed to bettering the lives of our city’s youth by helping them achieve their greatest potential and brightest possible future.

The significance of this award recognizes the extraordinary impact the Big has had in a child’s life and in their community.
