Ongoing Opportunities

Attend the Science Center of Iowa for free!
BBBSCI is now a member of the Science Center of Iowa! This is a great opportunity for you and your Little as you will be able to attend the Science Center for FREE. It also gives you discounted tickets to the IMAX (like $5 documentary tickets) as well as 10% off at the café and gift shop. If you would like to go to the Science Center, contact your case manager or stop by the Big Brothers Big Sisters’ office to check out one of our 4 membership cards. It is very important that we get the card back in a timely manner. Please arrange to return the card to our office within 2 business days of when you attend the Science Center so that other matches will be able to use it. Also, if a match would happen to lose a membership card, the Big would be responsible for paying to replace it (the cost would be $5). We hope that you and your Little will take advantage of this great opportunity throughout the coming years. Please contact your case manager with any additional questions.
