Studies show that kids who have a mentor in their life have better attitudes about school, stronger interpersonal skills, enhanced self-esteem, and improved behavior.

If you would like to be a positive force in a child's life, sign up to become a Big. We will pair you up with a Little that matches your personality and interests. You get to spend a few hours each month hanging out with your Little- hiking, playing games, doing crafts- whatever you want! It's all about having fun and building a relationship!
