ENROLL A CHILD

You’ll feel the impact as much as your child.

 

To be enrolled in our program, a child must be between the ages of 6-15 years old. Children matched prior to their 16th birthday will receive services until they are 18 years old or graduate high school. All services are free of charge.

 

When it comes to the future of our children and the well-being of our communities, we’re all in this together. We partner with the parents and guardians of the children to be involved every step of the way, starting with the initial match.

 

Not only will you provide information about your child’s strengths and needs, but you’ll also approve the selection of the Big Brother or Big Sister. Once the match is made, you remain closely involved in many ways, including:

 

  • Approving activities and outings for your child and their mentor

 

  • Asking your child questions about those outings, and sharing what you learn with the agency staff

 

  • Reporting your child’s progress and milestones to the agency on a regular basis (Big Brothers Big Sisters will contact you, but we welcome your feedback any time)

 

  • Participating in training on child safety offered by Big Brothers Big Sisters staff, and communicating with your child about the training he or she receives.

 

A study of Big Brothers Big Sisters found that children matched with a Big Brother/Big Sister:

 

  • Bear greater confidence
  • Are more likely to stay away from drugs and alcohol
  • Possess higher aspirations
  • Build durable, healthy relationships
