START SOMETHING: ENROLL A CHILD

 Our latest information is at our new Website https://www.bigbrothersbigsisterswci.org/

What You Can Expect....

Our mentoring program will provide a stable relationship for your son or daughter with a dependable role model from our community. Girls and boys can be referred to our program by their parent/legal guardian, teacher, or After School Program Site Director. A Big Sister or Big Brother is another positive adult figure in your child's life who can support, encourage and inspire life-dreams. A Big is someone your child can learn from and look up to. A Big is someone who can devote special one-to-one time to your child and give encouragement and motivation to reach life goals.
Volunteers are carefully and thoroughly screened, and matches are made to bring together the needs of the child and the skills, abilities and interests of the adult. Big Brothers Big Sisters matches children with a reliable adult mentor who will help your child set and meet goals, stand up to peer pressure, make good choices and gain confidence.
