ENROLLING A CHILD

All kids need a BIG. Because all kids are at risk. A Big Brother or Big Sister provides children with an adult who cares about them, a person who is rooting for them through life. Our program requires both Littles and Bigs to commit to a year of mentoring, but it is our sincere hope that your match lasts a lifetime. Ready to get involved?
