Program Information

Title: Community Based, One to One

Description: Our "One to One" program is what Big Brothers Big Sisters is founded upon. This program matches a caring adult volunteer (like you!) with a child between the ages of 6-13 in a one-to-one mentoring relationship. Each match meets on a regular basis as determined by the volunteer "Big", parent and child "Little".

Title: School Based, Lunch Buddies

Description: The Lunch Buddies Program matches individuals from the community with an elementary or middle school student. The matches meet during the child’s lunch hour – once per week – for the duration of the school year.

Title: High School Bigs

Description: High School Bigs matches high school students with elementary students in grades 1-3. The matches meet one hour per week in an assigned school location during school hours.
