Enrollment - Start Something BIG!
The following are brief descriptions of the programs Big Brothers Big Sisters of Fond du Lac County has to offer to children in the area:
The Community-Based program matches a Little one-to-one with a Big. The match spends a minimum or 4-6 hours per month together doing everyday activities at their convenience. The initial commitment is for one year; however, the ultimate goal is for the match to develop into a lifelong friendship. A traditional Little Brother or Little Sister must be between 6 and 13 years old. A traditional Big Brother or Big Sister must be at least 18 years old, have reliable transportation with auto insurance and meet all Big Brothers Big Sisters guidelines.
School/Site-based matches get together for 30 - 45 minutes each week during the Little's lunch hour at their school or during an after-school program at a designated site during the school year. School/Site-based matches spend this time talking, playing games, working on homework and many other activities on the school grounds. School/Site-based mentoring has been proven to help students develop more positive attitude towards school, improve grades, and improve relationships with both adults and peers. To be a School/Site-based Little, the child must have the flexibility to meet once a week over the lunch hour or during the after-school program and be referred by the school guidance counselor, their teacher, or their parent(s).
