When a child has a mentor, they are more likely to have higher educational success, higher aspirations, and improved confidence. A Big and a Little build a friendship that can last a lifetime.
What is a Big Sister?
A Big Sister is a female volunteer who is an active member of the community who is matched with a girl in need of mentoring services. The Big Sister volunteers to spend time with the Little Sister and becomes a friend who provides guidance. After receiving training from BBBS staff, the Big Sister is prepared to encourage her Little Sister to do well in school and in life.
How do a Little and Big Sister bond?
A Big Sister and Little Sister bond over activities they enjoy doing together! They can play sports in the park, try new foods, or even study at a coffee shop together. When a Big and a Little find an activity they both enjoy, that is when their friendship begins to grow.
