Activities for Bigs

Quarterly Big Round Table Training and Discussion

Thursday, September 14, 5:30-7:00 PM, BBBS Conference Room, 1300 Foster Drive, Suite 210

Join other Bigs (and interested parents) for our Quarterly Round Table.  The topic—Motivational Strategies to use with Teens—will introduce tactics used by professional counselors that have achieved positive results and hopefully generate discussion!  Come prepared to share your ideas and experiences with other Bigs and feel free to bring along your Little’s parent(s) if they are interested.  RSVP by Sep 11.  

New Retired Bigs Support Group is Forming!


Carson City Big Sister Anne has taken on the task of organizing this group to provide a chance for our retired Bigs to share ideas for activities and talk about how to support each other as older people connecting with young folk.  The plan is to meet the second Wednesday of each month in South Reno, to accommodate anyone interested from Reno, Sparks and Carson City.  Once you start connecting, the group will hopefully find its direction and become whatever you need it to be!  

Young Professionals Committee (YPC)


Bigs in their 20’s and 30’s are invited to join this group whose mission is to support BBBSNN. They meet on the first Tuesday of each month at a different location each time

The Biggest Little Club

College Bigs are invited to join this club that meets weekly on the UNR campus and provides peer support and training for current Bigs, as well as opportunities to help with on-campus recruitment of new Bigs.  Stay tuned for this semester’s meeting time and location!
