Super Bowl Recap with BBBS!

For the fourth time in eight years, Phoenix has gotten to host the biggest day in sports. From Gronk-laden pool parties in Scottsdale to Rhianna’s baby bump to the big game itself, Superbowl LVII has not disappointed in the slightest! The Valley really got to show up and show out this year and Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Arizona did not want to miss out on the action. As a Big thank you we were able to send Big Brother of the Year JC and his Little Brother Carlos out to State Farm Stadium for the game and activities (They even got to meet Brian Cranston!) 

You might be asking yourself, how do I get to do something nearly that cool and rewarding? Well do we have news for you, this spring you will have the opportunity to be drafted in our Inaugural BIG DRAFT. In partnership with the NFL Inspire Change initiative we are drafting this year’s class of Bigs to reduce barriers and to help unlock the potential kids in your community through mentorship. 

It’s time to get off the sidelines and get into the game! With Over 200 kids waiting for a Big-a caring mentor-like you in their corner, now is the best time to get involved. Our mentoring program has shown that pairing one adult volunteer (Big) with one child (Little) increases their little’s chance of avoiding risky behaviors, achieving education success and growing their self confidence on and off the field. Whether you can name every player name on your fantasy team or never watched a game in your life, you’ve got something to offer and this could be a life changing experience for both you and your potential little.

Got a lot of  great role models on your team? We implore you to activate your whole squad this draft season and huddle up around the game plan, to defend potential in youth. Everyone has the opportunity to be a child’s #1 draft pick this year, it’s your time to shine and make a difference today. 

Follow us on Facebook & Instagram (@bbbsaz) for updates on the campaign and tag friends, family, and colleagues who you think would make great Bigs.

The Big Draft campaign will run through the last week of April when the NFL Draft begins. To learn more about The Big Draft, visit . To learn more about Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Artizona’s mentorship and volunteer opportunities, visit
