This program matches local volunteers (college, corporate, etc.) with children at school-based or after school-based sites. After both parties complete applications, our Interview & Match Support Specialists match our volunteers and children based on a variety of factors, such as personalities, interests, and family history. After being matched, each Big and Little will find a good time when the Big should visit, and they will then meet once a week typically for 1-2 hours. The matches will be able to engage in activities of their choice at the site, such as going to the gym to play basketball or doing arts and crafts together. Periodically, a Match Support Specialist will check in with the Big and Little and offer support, suggestions and opportunities for the match to engage in.
