Our mentors commit to spending a few hours each week with a child in their community who is in need of extra support. All of our matches are based on compatibility, so “Bigs” and their “Littles” are free to do any mutually enjoyed activity.

Volunteers are provided with ongoing support from Caseworkers for the duration of their match.

Volunteers receive discounts from our community partners to do low-cost activities with their Littles.

We are always available to provide written or verbal reference letters for academic, work-related, or personal purposes.
