Taking a child to his first ballgame, teaching her how to shoot a perfect layup, visiting libraries or parks together - all while building a strong relationship that will help Little Brothers and Little Sisters navigate life’s challenges.
Community-Based mentoring is the traditional Big Brothers Big Sisters one-to-one mentoring model. Caring adult mentors (Bigs) are matched with children between the ages of 8 and 12 (Littles) who are often facing adversity.
Once a match has been made, Bigs and Littles spend time together out in the community doing activities that they both enjoy. It can be riding bikes, visits to museums, playing board games, simply hanging out, or whatever they decide together. It can be weekends, evenings or afterschool. Each match is unique and develops a schedule that works for them.
