About

Caring adults are needed to be mentors and positive influences for children ages 7-14. Our Community-Based Program matches Houston's youth who desire an adult friend with nearby volunteer mentors. Each match is made based on both the Big's and Little's preferences, personalities, and location. Also, each match is provided a Match Support Specialist to help along the friendship every step of the way. Bigs meet with their Littles and enjoy the community together at least 4 hours a month for a year (matches can go beyond the first year since you become great friends and establish a relationship).

By spending time with and showing interest in your Little, your life and your Little's life will be changed for the better, forever. Bigs and Littles choose what they will do for each visit, so your activities, your friendship, and your Little's successes are limited only by your imagination! Start something BIG!
