Enroll A Little
As a parent, you recognize the potential of your child better than anyone. By giving your child the opportunity to be part of Big Brothers Big Sisters, you’re starting them down a path to an even brighter, more promising future.

Could your little one use a Big?
It all starts with the right role models. And Big Brothers Big Sisters is the place to start a relationship with one. For over 100 years, due in large part to private donations, we’ve been able to recruit, screen, match, and support mentoring relationships that have changed the lives of hundreds of thousands of young people across the country.


Safety From the Start
Making the best possible match between Little and Big is critical to the growth and development of a child. But before we begin the matching process, we start by thoroughly screening potential Bigs.

Big Brothers Big Sisters National Standards of Excellence require each volunteer to:

             • Completion of a formal written application
 
             • Background and reference checks
 
             • An in-person interview
 
             • An orientation and training process that outlines the individualized needs of your child
              and provides information and resources on how to encourage your child's development

Big Brothers Big Sisters also provides child safety tips to you and your child, and we welcome your questions and feedback. Throughout the life of the match, our professional staff will be in ongoing communication with you, your child, and your child's Big. It’s the best way to build a strong relationship that will have the greatest impact on your child’s future success.

 

Families as Partners  
When it comes to the future of our children and the well-being of our communities, we’re all in this together. So it should come as no surprise that we need the parents and guardians of Littles 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 Big
 
              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.
