WHY IS BBBS RIGHT FOR
As a parent, you recognize the potential of your child better than anyone. By giving your child the opportunity to be part of Big Brothers Big Sisters, you’re starting them down a path to an even brighter, more promising future. Our one- to-one mentorship matches help Littles see better grades, better social skills, and more confidence.
FROM THE START
Your child’s safety is extremely important to us. Big Brothers Big Sisters conducts a thorough background check on every volunteer in our program, and every relationship is closely monitored and supported by a professionally trained match coordinator. We support our Bigs with all sorts of resources and regularly check in with our matches. We’ve designed everything we do to create healthy opportunities for your child’s learning and growth.
Every child is unique, and we’ve designed our programs to effectively serve your child’s individual needs. We currently have three ways to get your Little involved with a mentor.
Matches meet 2-4 times per month on evenings and/ or weekends at the convenience of both parties. Volunteers coordinate match times and activities directly with the parent. Meetings vary based on time availability and match activities.
Matches get to know each other and develop their friendships through various activities they enjoy such as taking a walk, attending sporting events, visiting the library or partaking in a favorite hobby, etc. The possibilities are limitless and flexible.
