Big Brothers Big Sisters
Big Brothers Big Sisters is a way to bring magic to a child's life. It is a program that matches your child with a mentor/volunteer that fits his or her personality, as well as preference and location. Making a right match is important to form long lasting relationships.
You child's mentor is a positive role model, good friend, and someone to look up to. They all hold the highest standards possible. Every mentor goes through a thorough background check and a careful interview process.
Mentors will spend at least one hour a week with your child, either in a school or community setting. In a school setting they will do projects with your child, eat lunch, shoot hoops, or whatever interest they share with your child. In a community setting they will do community activities, hang out, and go places. Community events are held on a regular basis to give your child an opportunity to meet with other bigs and littles in your area. Whatever your child and their mentor decide to do, they always have the parents permission.
Your child will develop friendships, as well as trust and self confidence. They will have someone they can share their likes and dislikes with, and never have to worry about being judged or disappointed.
Each match is supported by professional staff. Match support specialists regularly check in and are always available to answer questions. Parents are never left in the dark, as they are continuously updated on everything going on.
Littles come from many different home environments and structures. Big Brothers Big Sisters do not discriminate, therefore everyone is welcome.
