When Big Brothers Big Sisters works to match a Little with a Big, we take into account the needs, personality, interests, and goals of both the child and the adult volunteer. We introduce the Little and his or her family to the Big slowly and make sure everyone is fully committed to the match before it is made official.
Screening and Training
Child safety is Big Brothers Big Sisters' highest priority. To achieve the highest standards possible, we work constantly to review and strengthen our background check systems as new best practices in the industry emerge. We also make sure our Bigs and our staff have the training and resources they need to help Littles on their path to success.
Children get the most out of their one-to-one relationship with their Big when the Big, the parent or guardian, and the child talk openly with their Case Specialist. Working as part of the team helping the child succeed, the Case Specialist can help identify problems, brainstorm solutions, and connect the family with essential services.
Big Brothers Big Sisters provide activities for Big and Littles and we also alert Bigs to opportunities in the community. This enables Bigs to get to know other Bigs, who might be experience similar things and who might have great suggestions for more new activities.
