Mission Statement

Description

Big Brothers Big Sisters matches caring adults with children for 2-4 hours each week . They read together, play board games or just talk. Children benefit; adults feel like a kid again.

Big Brothers Big Sisters provides opportunities for volunteers of all ages to be friends to children who need extra time and attention to succeed in school and with family and peers. Typically, the 2 - 4 hours spent each week talking about what is on the child's mind, reading the newspaper together, playing board games, baking cookies, etc. has a positive impact on the child's attitude, while putting a little fun and extra meaning into the volunteer's day and week. Volunteers enroll through Big Brothers Big Sisters and following an interview, reference check and a background check, they are introduced to their Little Brother/Sister. Regular support is available to assure that the relationship builds over time, and any logistical problems are resolved. Parents and teachers report that children with Bigs have an improved attitude about school, better relationships with peers and adults, and improved academic performance.
