Change a child's life...AND YOURS!

For a few hours, a couple times a month, you can give a Little the invaluable gift of your friendship. Studies show our mentorships can help increase a child's confidence, academic success, and social skills. By simply changing their perspective of what the world can offer, you can literally start changing their life!

We are actively seeking volunteers interested in one-on-one mentorships for the children we serve. We serve children ages 6 - 13 in the City of Fredericksburg and the counties of Caroline, King George, Stafford, and Spotsylvania.

Play a board game, grab a bite of pizza, make fun crafts, bake cookies, take a hike, learn a new hobby together...your options are unlimited, just like your Little’s potential.

We will provide an orientation and training to help you be the best BIG you can be! Our professionally trained staff will be there to support you every step of the way!

We’re always looking for people eager to positively impact a child and improve their community at the same time.

There are kids out there ready to get started. Are you?
