Meet Your Little
Once we’ve gotten to know you, we will find the most compatible Little to match you with.

Show Up & Be You

We work hard to pair Littles with Bigs who will make a great match. You have common ground right from the start. And then all you have to do is explore and learn together, just twice a month for a year. Play sports together. Go on a hike. Read books. Eat a pizza with extra anchovies. Or just give some advice and inspiration. Whatever it is you enjoy, odds are you’ll enjoy them even more with your Little—and you’ll be making a life-changing impact.

Free & Fun Activities

You and your Little can join in any of our monthly activities like amusement parks, museums, bowling, baseball games, and many other adventures. You’ll always have something to do with your Little!

Lean on Us

You won’t have all of the answers. But you will have support. Your Match Support Specialist will provide one-to-one guidance and offer ideas for building the relationship with your Little.

Make An Impact

When you befriend a little, you change lives – starting with your own. As a Big Brother or Big Sister, you help not just a child, but an entire family. And the benefits ripple out through our community.
