COULD YOUR LITTLE ONE USE A BIG?

OUR IMPACT

A study for Big Brothers Big Sisters found that kids matched with a Big Brother or Big Sister:

  • are more confident
  • are more likely to steer clear of drugs and alcohol
  • do better in school
  • get along better with their family and friends
  • feel better about themselves*

Our Impact

CHILD SAFETY

Making the best possible match between Little and Big is critical to the growth and development of a child. But before we begin the matching process, we start by thoroughly screening potential Bigs. Our extensive screening process includes:

  • Completion of a formal written application
  • Background and reference checks
  • An in-person interview
  • An orientation and training process that outlines the individualized needs of your child and provides information and resources on how to encourage your child’s development

PARENTS WANTED.

You know what’s best for your child. So we’ll need your help from the start, providing information about your child’s strengths and needs, and ultimately approving the Big Brother or Big Sister match. Our matches are highly supported and monitored to make certain you, your child, and their mentor get the most out of their experience.
