Explore the Community with a Little

Two hours, twice a month is enough time to change lives: Your Little's life and yours.

Community-Based Mentoring

This is the traditional Big Brothers Big Sisters relationship, where Bigs and Littles get together on their own to share activities they both enjoy. Individuals, couples, and families are matched with a Little (age 6 and older) to share fun and rewarding experiences throughout the community as they build their friendship.

By meeting at least twice a month for two hours each time for at least a year, the Big is able to introduce the Little to new people, places and ideas. This broadens the child's view of the world around them and the many opportunities available.

Getting together is a great time for both the Big and the Little. It doesn’t require a special occasion or expensive activities; just a few hours every month to share the simple things you already like to do. Things like…

Taking a walk in the park

Going to a museum

Playing a game

Listening to music

Hanging out and talking

Some Bigs meet their Littles on the weekends. Others get together with their Littles in the evenings. Each match is unique and develops a schedule that works for them.

Meeting consistently is the key!

Big Couple

Similar to the traditional match but partners are both matched with a boy who would benefit from the attention of the couple. This allows for the Bigs to spend time as a couple with their Little.

Big Family

As the title would suggest, families are matched with a Little. In these matches, Littles are introduced to a family unit that may differ from their own. Bigs are able to keep the same commitment to their own family activities while introducing their children to a peer they may not have met otherwise.
