MAKING THE MATCH & BEYOND
Step 5: Making the Match and Beyond
Make Match: The Make Match typically happens at the Little’s house. In attendance are the Little, parent/guardian, program coordinator, and new Big – that’s you! We make introductions and review policies such as healthy boundaries and transportation. We go through some surveys and discuss goals. Then we take a picture and help get the Big and Little talking and brainstorming activity ideas.
Beyond the Make Match: Both the Big and Little receive a call from their program coordinator two weeks into their match to see how the first one or two outings have gone. Then we will be checking in monthly for the first year. We help with activity ideas, problem solving, coaching conversations, and building rapport. You are encouraged to reach out anytime with questions.
