Each match holds promise.
What if every child had that special someone who started them on the right path? It’s often the simple things in life that create a favorite memory, and just being there for your Little as a friend can transform a young person’s future. That’s the magic of Big Brothers Big Sisters. Ready to become a Big?
Our community based matches involve one-to-one mentoring between a Big Brother or Sister and Little Brother or Sister between the ages of 6-18. Children in our community based program may come to us through their parent/guardian, youth service agencies, churches, and other referrals. You will be assigned a Match Support Specialist who will be your support system throughout the life of your match. They will answer questions, check in with you on a regular basis, provide ideas for outings and tickets to events to attend with your Little and more.
There are a variety of ways you can spend time with your Little, including:
• Playing sports together
• Going to a museum
• Baking cookies
• Taking a walk in the park
Each match is unique and develops a schedule that works for them, whether it’s meeting on the weekends or getting together in the evening. A caring adult sharing everyday experiences with a child can be life-altering, and truly a part of something BIG. Click here to begin the process of becoming a Big Brother or Big Sister!
