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.

Mission Statement

The Mission of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Washtenaw County is to create and support one-to-one mentoring relationships that ignite the power and promise of youth.

Description

At Big Brothers Big Sisters of Washtenaw County, we believe in the dignity and worth of all individuals. We believe that each young person deserves unconditional support and acceptance, no matter their race, religion, gender or sexual orientation.

We believe that relationships are most meaningful when they are full of Empathy, Genuineness, and Unconditional Positive Regard.

We utilize the Search Institute's Developmental Relationship Framework in creating and supporting the relationship life cycle through Expressing Care, Challenging Growth, Providing Support, Sharing Power and Expanding Possibilities. Through this framework, we help youth further develop a young persons' Confidence, Competence, Connections, Character, Caring and Contribution - the six elements of Positive Youth Development.

And the best part. All of this happens while having fun, sharing laughs and making memories!!
