Everybody Needs a Break! A break from the books, from the screens, from the meetings, from the webinars, from the blah, blah, blah. Lunch Buddies is an opportunity for kids and volunteers to have lunch and recess together...hanging out, playing games, talking, doing fun activities....all while building a supportive friendship that will help kids be ready to learn and grow in the classroom.

Our Lunch Buddies programs will be taking place at Estabrook Elementary and Erickson Elementary Schools this year. We will also be enrolling for our Mentor U program that will take place at Ypsilanti High School.

We are now accepting applications to become a "Big" in our school based programs for the school year 2022/2023.

About Big Brothers Big Sisters of Southeast Michigan (BBBSSEM)

Location:

11 W. Michigan Avenue, Ypsilanti, MI 48197, US

Mission Statement

Our VISION is to help all youth achieve their full potential. Our MISSION is to create and support one-to-one mentoring relationships that ignite the power and promise of youth.

Description

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Southeast Michigan is a nonprofit organization that provides one-to-one mentoring relationships to children in need. Big Brothers Big Sisters of Southeast Michigan matches adult volunteers (Bigs) with children (Littles) between the ages of 8 - 18. We cover the four county region in Southeast Michigan (Washtenaw, Oakland, Macomb and Wayne), and provide additional programming and services to families and the community!

With the help of our Bigs, community sponsors, and generous corporate and individual donors, we are able to change the lives of young people in our region. We know that when youth are surrounded by consistent, caring adults in safe, developmental relationships, we can help create sparks to tap into those dreams, break down walls and build up confidence to explore how to reach for their goals and provide the support and encouragement that helps them to learn and grow. BBBS provides professional staff that recruit, enroll, match and support youth, volunteers and families to create and support developmental relationships. We believe that relationships are most meaningful when they are full of Empathy, Genuineness, and Unconditional Positive Regard.
