Enroll Your Child
Finding a Friend and Role Model for your child
Our mentoring program will provide a stable relationship for your son or daughter with a dependable role model from our community. A Big is someone your child can learn from and look up to. A Big is someone who can devote special one-to-one time to your child and give encouragement and motivation to reach life goals.
Big Brothers Big Sisters matches children between the age of 6 -15 with a reliable adult mentor who will help your child set and meet goals, stand up to peer pressure, make good choices and gain confidence.
Each Big is asked to commit to one year worth of mentoring and meet with their Little at least twice a month.
