Our School-Based Program matches high school juniors and seniors with elementary and middle school students. The high school students receive a general elective credit for participation in the program and are matched with two Littles. Bigs visit each Little twice per week and come to the BBBSYC office once per week for class. Bigs help their Littles with homework, play with them on the playground and provide guidance to inspire them to reach their full potential.
The impact on Littles and Bigs is profound and measurable and truly makes a difference. Research has shown that the Littles improve in the areas of academics, self confidence, familial relationships and the ability to avoid delinquency.
If you are interested in making a difference, talk to your counselor about enrolling in this elective class for your junior and/or senior year!
