We Defend Potential

Community-Based Mentoring

Many relationships between Bigs and Littles fall under our Community-Based programs. These are one-to-one outings and activities, doing things they enjoy together, like:

1.      Taking a walk in the park

2.      Going to museum

3.      Inspiring each other

4.      Listening to music

5.      Hanging out and talking

6.      Participating in or watching sports activities

Because matches are made based on the shared interests of the child and the adult, their activities are as varied as the individuals in the Big-Little match. 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.

School-Based Mentoring

It may sound obvious, but sometimes the best place to help a child realize their potential is at school. Kids enjoy having their Bigs meet with them there, whether it’s in the classroom or on the playground. And parents know what a positive impact it makes.

It’s teacher-approved.

Some of the biggest supporters of our School-Based Mentoring program are actually teachers. They see students come back from their time with their Big filled with confidence, smiling big, ready to learn and eager to succeed.
