Apply to be a big

During this time of social distancing, we are still accepting applications. When the time comes where people can come together in-person, people will crave companionship more than ever. This makes NOW a great time to apply. Interviews may happen virtually; but you’ll be on-track to be matched – in real life! – with a deserving Little who’s ready to enjoy great experiences with you.

Here’s what you’ll need to complete our application quickly and easily:

  • About 10-15 minutes
  • Your driver’s license number and expiration date
  • Three (3) references + name, email, phone for each
    • Spouse/live-in partner/relative
    • Close friend of 2 years or more
    • Work, school, or personal reference

Once you hit “Submit,” you’ll hear from a BBBSEMO staff member within two (2) business days. They’ll answer questions and schedule your volunteer interview.

If at any time you have a question or concern, please contact Ericka Sanders at or (314) 615-1041.

Thanks in advance for your commitment to be there for our community’s children, teens and young adults.
