Building a brighter community-
Many of our Bigs and Littles participate in our Community-based program. Community-based mentoring relationships involve one-on-one outings and activities doing things Bigs and Littles can enjoy together, like:
Taking a walk in the park
Going to a museum
Attending one of our events
Listening to music
Hanging out and talking
If you ever run out of ideas, you can check out the Big App for an endless list of fun activities! Some Bigs meet their Littles on the weekends. Others get together with their Littles on weekday evenings. Some meet one hour each week. Some meet a few hours one day every month. Each match is unique and develops a schedule that works for them.
Role models make an impact.
Studies show that children who have role models are more likely to improve in school and in their relationships with family and friends, and less likely to skip school or use illegal drugs or alcohol. Students who are successful in school are less likely to drop out, abuse drugs, or commit crimes.
