Let's Start Something Together
Parents are an important part of Big Brothers Big Sisters; they're not just part of the process. They're part of the success. When it comes to the future of our children and the well-being of our communities, we're all in this together. So it should come as no surprise that we need the parents and guardians of Littles to be involved in every step of the way, starting with the initial match.
Not only will you provide information about your child's strengths and needs, but you'll also approve the selection of the Big Brother or Big Sister. Once the match is made, you remain closely involved in many ways, including:
Approving activities and outings for your child and their Big.
Asking your child questions about those outings and sharing what you learn with the Big Brothers Big Sisters staff.
Reporting your child's progress and milestones to Big Brothers Big Sisters on a regular basis. Big Brothers Big Sisters staff will contact you, but we welcome your feedback any time.
Participating in training on child safety offered by Big Brothers Big Sisters staff, and communicating with your child about the training he or she receives.
If you have any questions about your role with Big Brothers Big Sisters, please feel free to call 800-648-1696.
