Mission Statement

Our mission is to provide children facing adversity with strong and enduring, professionally supported 1-to-1 relationships that change their lives for the better, forever.


Volunteers (Bigs) cultivate relationships that provide children with skills to manage every day challenges. Through simple friendship, Bigs experience the joy of helping children discover a world of possibilities and opportunities.

Bigs provide Littles with one-to-one time and attention in their communities, typically four hours or more per month. During these unstructured outings, Bigs provide opportunities for Littles to enjoy the companionship of a caring adult outside of the home and school in various community, sporting, cultural, and educational activities.

This is just like a "Traditional Community-Based Match" except a child is matched with a couple.

School-based mentoring is a way for busy individuals to volunteer and for companies to give back to the community. In the school-based program, companies typically allow their employees to volunteer one hour of their work week during the academic school year, by providing Littles with one-to-one time and attention in their school.

I would recommend this organization to a friend or colleague because it seem as if it would be a gray organization to learn from and also set examples to younger peers.
