Little FAQ

What is Big Brothers Big Sisters?2023-08-16T15:47:02-05:00

Big Brothers Big Sisters is a non-profit agency that creates professionally supported, one-to-one mentoring relationships (matches) between youth (Littles) and caring adult role models (Bigs).

Is the program safe for my child?2023-08-16T15:47:29-05:00

Our enrollment staff are comprised of experienced professionals that thoroughly and completely screen every volunteer. Volunteer and child friendships are monitored monthly. This process helps ensure the most successful match between your child and a qualified volunteer mentor. Big Brothers Big Sisters aims to make a quality match that is best for your child and for the volunteer.

Do I get to choose a Big?2023-08-16T15:47:33-05:00

Your input is key to our success. Our enrollment team will thoroughly interview the volunteers, children, and parents/guardians involved to make a meaningful match based on backgrounds, common interests, aspirations, and personalities. From the information gathered in those interviews, our skilled team will decide which volunteer is best for your child. We will then discuss the selected volunteer with you and get your permission to proceed with the matching process.

How much does the program cost?2023-08-16T15:47:36-05:00

Our program is completely free to Littles and their families. With that said, the quality of the time invested in a Little is more important than the amount of money spent. That’s why we don’t encourage spending a lot of money on outings. We encourage Bigs to seek out low-cost activities, especially in the beginning. Big Brothers Big Sisters agencies offer donor-supported group activities that are a great way to meet other Bigs and Littles, and may offer free tickets to cultural and sports activities for matches to enjoy together.

What sort of support will we receive from the agency?2023-08-16T15:47:39-05:00

Once your child is matched with a Big, our Match Support team will maintain recurring contact with Bigs, Littles, and parents/guardians to offer support and guidance while ensuring the match remains safe for everyone involved. Our Match Support team is comprised of trained social services professionals who equip matches and families with information, advice, tips, resources, and answers.
