Community-based

Spending time together out in the local community is primarily how Bigs and Littles develop their relationship. After all, to change a child’s perspective of the world, it helps to spend some time out in it.

Through this program, you and your Little Brother or Sister will spend time together once a week in the community. You can go to the park, watch movies, go to sporting events, go skating, and so much more. This includes being a Big to a child being raised by a single parent or who has a parent or guardian who is or has been incarcerated. Similarly, other children we serve are older and include struggling high school students or teen moms. These teens need a positive influence, and the extra support of knowing that someone is there to talk, motivate them to stay in school, and be a dependable friend. We encourage you to fit your Little into any activity that you think is fun!
