Community-Based Programs

Let’s start something together

    Many relationships between Bigs and Littles fall under our Community-Based programs. These are one-on-one outings and activities, doing things they enjoy together, like:

    • Taking a walk in the park
    • Playing a game together
    • Watching a local sporting event
    • Listening to music
    • Hanging out and talking

    Some Bigs meet their Littles on the weekends. Others get together with their Littles in the evenings. Each match is unique and develops a schedule that works for them.

      Role models make an impact

      National and local studies show that children who have role models are more likely to improve in:

      • school
      • their relationships with family and friends
      • are less likely to skip school,
      • or use illegal drugs/alcohol.

      Students who are successful in school are less likely to drop out, abuse drugs or commit crimes.
