The Community Based programs are the traditional mentoring program where a Big spends a couple of hours per week with a Little. Activities may be as simple as window shopping or a movie, playing football in the park or making holiday decorations, going to a school play or watching a basketball game. It is the individual time and attention that Bigs spend with their Littles that make all the difference.
Bigs must be 18 years or older and complete a screening process before being matched to a Little. The initial commitment is for one year.
With this opportunity, a Little is matched with a couple to share and participate in different activities. The couple can consist of any two people- spouses, friends, roommates, significant others, etc.
For volunteers with families of their own, we offer this opportunity to bring your type of family fun into the life of a Little. You probably already have lots of family activities and outings planned, so this is quite simple-just take along your Little.
