Community Based

Our Community Based Program

The Community Based program pairs children in one to one relationships with caring adult volunteers. Being a Big Brother or Big Sister or Big Couple is one of the most rewarding and enjoyable things you will ever do.

What do you do?
It’s easy! Your Little can join you for the kinds of activities you already like to do, such as:

    *Shooting hoops
    *Playing a board game
    *Sharing a pizza
    *Taking a walk in the park
    *Or just hanging out and talking

Meeting just 2-4 times a month can change a young person’s life. In the Community Based program you will go to your little’s house, pick him/her up and take them out on an activity. The friendship you build is what helps these children overcome amazing obstacles in their lives.

Who are the kids?
Little Brothers and Little Sisters come from all kinds of backgrounds. Some are really little (as young as seven) and some are teenagers. Some may live on your block and some a few miles away. Some just need an extra friend and some have a lot of obstacles to overcome…

What do they all have in common?
They need the friendship and guidance of someone like YOU.

Who are the Volunteers?
Volunteers in the Community Based program must be at least 18 years old or older. Volunteers can be an individual female (Big Sister) or male (Big Brother), a couple (Big Couple) or even a family that volunteers together(Big Family) .
