HOW MUCH TIME DOES IT TAKE?
On average, our adult mentors (Bigs) and children and youth (Littles) will meet for at least a few hours each week in the Community-Based Mentoring Program and one to two times a month in the Sports Buddies Program. Some prefer to spend the time all at once, and others prefer to meet more often and for shorter periods of time. Bigs in the Site-Based Mentoring Program meet with their Littles in school for 45-60 minutes each week throughout the school year.
HOW DO THE CHILDREN AND PARENTS GET INTO THE BIG BROTHERS BIG SISTERS PROGRAM?
They usually hear about the program through friends, relatives, schools, counselors and other Bigs and Littles.
ARE THERE ANY GROUP ACTIVITIES AVAILABLE FOR PROGRAM PARTICIPANTS?
There are bimonthly group activities. These are entirely optional, but many Bigs & Littles enjoy them as it provides a change of pace and an opportunity to meet other Bigs and Littles.
