Big Brothers Big Sisters of Gallatin County-Become a Big!

By becoming a Big Brother, Big Sister, Big Couple or Big Family you can truly influence the life of a child, and you will both be forever changed by the experience. Big Brothers Big Sisters of Gallatin County offers a variety of volunteer experiences.  

Discover how you can make a difference:
Are you at least 18 years old?
Do you have a couple extra hours a week, a valid drivers license and an insured vehicle?
Can you make an 18 month commitment?
Do you enjoy kids and having fun?

Big Brothers Big Sisters serves children ages 5-15 in our local community.   Their backgrounds and personalities are unique, but they all have a need for friendship with a caring adult.  We ask our volunteers for an 18 month commitment, and to spend 1-2 hours, a week with the child.  Activities that many matches enjoy are going to the park, walking the dog, going fishing, arts and crafts, making dinner together and many other activities.

Collect data and write paper to be published in a pediatric medical journal.

Organization: Eat, Live, Play: Family-centered childhood obesity treatment program run through the Gallatin Valley YMCA in partnership with Bozeman Deaconess Hospital.

Dr. Pepper Henyon is looking for a student who has an interest in research to gather the data for this childhood obesity treatment program which has been present in Bozeman for 2 years, and write a paper to be submitted to a pediatric medical journal for publication. There is no specific time in which this needs to be completed but Dr. Pepper Henyon would like to share the experience of this program in order to spread the word about community-based efforts and hopefully inspire other doctors around the country to do a similar program. If published, the student would be the lead author and have a publication to their name.

If interested in this opportunity, please contact Dr. Pepper Henyon at pepperhenyon@gmail.com or call 579-1837
