So many ways to get started
|Community-based Bigs and Littles participate in one-to-one outings and activities, doing things they enjoy together, like:
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.
In addition to one-to-one community-based mentoring, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Northwest Florida offers Couples Mentoring where two adults share the responsibility of mentoring one child. To learn more about mentoring with a friend, spouse, family member or co-worker as a BIG Couple, click here.
Role models make an impact
National and local studies show that children who have role models are more likely to improve in school and in their relationships with family and friends, and less likely to skip school or use illegal drugs or alcohol. Students who are successful in school are less likely to drop out, abuse drugs or commit crimes. In fact, the success of children enrolled in Big Brothers Big Sisters was proven in a nationwide randomized study.
