Our mission is to provide all children facing adversity with professionally supported, one-to-one mentoring relationships that change their lives for the better, forever!
Big Brothers Big Sisters makes meaningful, mentorship matches between volunteer “Bigs” and children “Littles”, ages 6-18. We then provide the necessary training, resources and support necessary for those matches to succeed. We conduct our program in a the following ways.
This is our traditional match, where adult mentors are paired with children ages 6-16 with the commitment to see each other 2 times per month for a couple of hours. Each match is hand selected by our team based on shared interests, geography and personality. Big and Littles plan their own outings filled with things they like to do, like sports, going to the beach or music.
Our site based programs are very similar to our community based program but take place on site and are facilitated by our team. We have two distinct Site-Based Programs.
HOW IT WORKS
All prospective Littles for need and capacity for match success.
New volunteers through referral, marketing, social media, corporate partners and events.
All prospective Bigs and Littles to get to know their personality and interests. We also thoroughly background check all volunteers via Live Scan, Lexis Nexis, DMV and the FBI.
A Big to a Little based upon multiple variables with a goal of creating a long-term friendship.
MONITOR & SUPPORT
We support Bigs and Littles as they face the multitudes of challenges life creates and monitor the matches for safety and longevity.
