COULD YOUR LITTLE ONE USE A BIG?
As a parent, you recognize teh potential of your child better than anyone. By giving you child the opportunity to be part o Big Brothers Big Sisters you are starting them down the path to an even brighter, more promising future.
You know what’s best for your child. So we’ll need your help from the start, providing information about your child’s strengths and needs, and ultimately approving the Big Brother or Big Sister match. But your role doesn’t end there.
YOU WILL FEEL THE IMPACT AS MUCH AS YOUR CHILD
A study for Big Brothers Big Sisters found that kids matched with a Big Brother or Big Sister:
✓ are more confident
✓ are more likely to steer clear of drugs and alcohol
✓ do better in school
✓ get along better with their family and friends
✓ feel better about themselves*
SAFETY FROM THE START
Your child’s safety is extremely important to us. Big Brothers Big Sisters conducts a thorough background check on every volunteer in our program, and every relationship is closely monitored and supported by a professionally trained match coordinator.
