Our mission at Big Brothers Big Sisters is to provide children facing adversity with strong and enduring, professionally supported 1-to-1 relationships that change their lives for the better, forever.
Community- Based Mentoring: These are one-to-one outings and activities, doing things they enjoy together, like:
- Taking a walk in the park
- Going to a museum
- Listening to music
- Hanging out and talking
Some Bigs meet their Littles on the weekends and others get together with their Littles in the evenings during the week. All matches meet once a week for a couple hours each time. Each match is unique and develops a schedule that works for them.
As an agency, we recommend free and low-cost outings. In addition, BBBS provides plenty of activity ideas, organizes group match activities, and directs you to local community events and local happenings to make it easy to find things to do with your Little.
We'll be with you every step of the way to help you through this process and answer any questions you have!
