Do you remember a person from your childhood who you not only looked up to, but who brought a little magic into your life, just by being there? Likely, it was someone other than your parents, someone you respected, but who did not have an authoritarian, parental role.
Youth development experts agree that, in addition to their parents, children need additional supportive, caring adults in their lives. Little Brothers and Little Sisters - "Littles" - are children of school age have been given that advantage, and have a friend there just for them.
Through their friendship with a Big Brother or Big Sister, Littles often discover a whole new world of experiences, opportunity, and potential. Being a Little can transform the life of a child, and have lifelong results. In fact, research has shown that the shared experiences between Bigs and Littles have a direct and lasting impact on young people's lives.
Bigs and Littles do simple things together - playing sports, seeing movies, cooking, going over schoolwork, visiting museums, washing the car, taking walks, volunteering in their communities, or just hanging out together. It's the friendship that develops while doing these everyday activities that makes the difference.
Big Brothers Big Sisters works closely with parents and guardians to match every child with the right Big. Every volunteer is screened, trained, and supervised, and professionals in youth development support each match to help ensure the relationship will be safe and rewarding for everyone involved.
