Big Brothers, Big Sisters and Big Couples are caring adults who spend a little time to make a big difference. They serve as companions, friends and role models to children, primarily from single-parent families. By sharing experiences and providing guidance to the Little, the Big can help him or her see all of life’s possibilities and reach their full potential. Bigs and Littles are matched according to common interests, compatible personalities and who live within a convenient distance from one another. Mentors are asked to make at least a one year commitment in the program.

In Community-Based Mentoring Program, Bigs and Littles spend 3-5 hours together each week and enjoy many activities in the community. Activities could include walks in the park, backyard barbecues, mountain hikes, and playing video or board games together.
