SOME WAYS TO GET TRACTION On This Journey Back to Who We Really Are

BIG BROTHERS BIG SISTERS believes that in each child there is a special spark that, when provided with inspiration and encouragement, will lead them to become a positive, productive citizen of our community and the world.

With just a few hours each month as a volunteer Big Brother or Big Sister, you’ll become a role model and a friend and provide your Little with the support they need to reach their full potential.

And … it’s rewarding and fun!

Big Brothers Big Sisters LogoMentoring works. We see it every day. We hear it in the stories our Bigs and Littles tell us and in the research studies that we read. And you can learn about it firsthand. When you mentor, you change the life of a child and make a lasting, positive impact on your community.

Dogs at Brother Wolf grin from ear to ear when they hear that it’s time to go on a hike! Their howls of joy can be heard throughout our adoption center! This fall has blessed us with perfect weather in Asheville and our dogs have enjoyed countless trail days.
Just look at how much fun they are having! And it’s all thanks to our dedicated Outward Hound volunteers. While the dogs in our care wait for their adoptive families to come along, our Outward Hound volunteers make sure they experience endless joy on mountain trails.
We just had to share these happy moments with you! Thank you for supporting Brother Wolf. It’s your support that allows us to bring joy, safety, care and love to the lives of thousands of animals each year.  CLICK FOR MORE
